To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what advice he has received from the Territorial Army brigadiers concerning the size, shape and future role of the Territorial Army. [15334]

The future size, shape and role of the Territorial Army will be determined by the Strategic Defence Review. We are consulting very widely in the course of this work. In particular I expect to have discussions shortly with Brigadier Holmes, who took up his responsibilities as Director of Reserve Forces and Cadets this month. Other members of the TA, like all Service personnel, are welcome to make submissions direct to the Review Team.
