Call-out Reservists (Balkans)

Volume 459: debated on Monday 16 April 2007

A new call-out order has been made under section 56 of the Reserve Forces Act 1996 so that reservists may continue to be called-out into permanent service to support military operations in the Balkans. The order took effect on 2 April 2007.

Some 190 reservists were mobilised during the 12-month period ending 31 March 2007. Although the number of UK personnel in the Balkans is reducing, we expect to continue to call-out reservists to support operations in that theatre.
