§ Mr. Trotter
asked the Secretary of State for Defence (1) how many Territorial battalions will be in the 6th, 7th and 8th field forces, respectively;
(2) how many of the 29 Regular infantry battalions stationed in the United Kingdom will be in the 6th, 7th and 8th field forces, respectively;
(3) what will be the unit strength of each of the 6th, 7th and 8th field forces in terms of infantry, armour, reconnaissance, field artillery, medium artillery, anti-aircraft artillery, engineer and signal units.
§ Mr. Robert Brown
It is not normal practice to give the detailed order of battle of formations, but, on current plans, each field force will have three regular and at least two territorial infantry battalions together with a balanced mix of the other arms and services.
