To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the voluntary outflow rate from each (a) service and (b) rank of the armed forces was in each of the last three years. (274980)

The voluntary outflow rates of officers and of other ranks from each service are published in tables 3-8 of Tri-Service Publication 05 (TSP05). TSP05 is published monthly; the current March 2009 publication includes time series back to 1998-99 and can be found at:

Voluntary outflow rates for each rank have not been compiled and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

Copies of TSP05 are also available from the Library of the House.
