Volume 453: debated on Thursday 16 November 2006

With the expiry of the call-out order made last November, a new order has been made under section 54 of the Reserve Forces Act 1996 to enable reservists to continue to be called out into service to support operations in Afghanistan. The new order is effective until 11 November 2007. Reservists are making a valuable contribution to operations in that country and some 380 reservists are currently called out in support of the operation.
