HC Deb 14 October 1991 vol 196 cc61-2W
Sir David Price

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what his plans are for the future of military music generally and regimental bands in particular, in consequence of his restructuring of the British Army; and if he will make a detailed statement.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

The commandant of the Royal Military School of Music is carrying out a major review of the future organisation, structure and geographical location of Army bands in the light of the restructuring of the Army. It is too early to say what changes to military music, bands and the careers of musicians will result from that review.
