Army: Training

Volume 457: debated on Friday 23 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what (a) annual and (b) in-year changes were made to the budget for army training in each of the last five years. (121875)

Training for the Army is funded from the Defence Budget and the Conflict Prevention Fund. Training consists of a mixture of individual, unit and larger formation activities and is supplemented by appropriate training for specific operations. Plans are adjusted frequently in light of changing operational circumstances and budgets are held and managed locally in many cases. Control figures are not therefore held on the totality of training costs and could be provided only at disproportionate costs.
