Territorial Army: Food

Volume 465: debated on Wednesday 24 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether Territorial Army personnel on weekend training are expected to pay for their meals. (157163)

In general, reserve forces personnel working at their parent unit (or Territorial Army Headquarters) who are in receipt of full-time pay or “over eight hours” daily rate of pay are treated as full-time service personnel and therefore pay for their food. However, personnel on exercise being fed under field conditions do not pay for their food.
