HC Deb 07 December 1965 vol 722 cc83-4W
76. Mr. Ridley

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he has discussed the reorganisation of the Reserve Forces with the United Kingdom's allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Mr. Mulley

N.A.T.O. was informed of the reorganisation. As my right hon. Friend made clear in his statement to the House on 29th July, one important rôle for the new Reserve Army will be to continue to provide reinforcements which will put our Regular Forces in Europe fully on a war footing.
