Earl De La Warr
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they are now in a position to announce what enhancements will be made to the capability of the Volunteer SAS Regiments as a result of the Territorial Army expansion programme.
§ Lord Trefgarne
Yes. We have now decided to form two additional SAS(V) squadrons, which will be based in Newport and Manchester. This will be a significant enhancement to our operational capability.
