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.
