HC Deb 14 July 1966 vol 731 cc264-5W
Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what arrangements are being made to compensate and resettle in suitable Government posts those civilian employees made redundant as a result of the reorganisation of the Territorial Army.

Mr. Reynolds

Employees of Territorial and Auxiliary Forces Associations will be eligible for compensation based on that in the London Government (Compensation) Regulations (1964). So far as possible they will be offered alternative employment in Government Departments; the terms under which they would enter the civil service are still under consideration. These arrangements are under discussion with the Staff Associations and Trade Unions concerned. Normal Government redundancy arrangements will apply to Ministry of Defence employees.
