§ Mr. Brazier
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is TA 2000; when its terms of reference were published; if he will place a copy in the Library; whether an interim progress report has been published; and what is its relationship to the study referred to in the debate of 21 February,Official Report, column 546.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
TA 2000 was the name given to an internal aide memoire prepared in the Ministry of Defence in 1989 which listed the current and future improvements then being considered for the TA. It was purely an internal management document to help co-ordination in the Ministry of Defence and is not appropriate for placing in the Library. It covered a wide range of activities including training. The study I referred to on 21 February is considering the organisation of training in order to make the best use of training time. This work was foreseen in TA 2000.
