To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to use members of the reserve forces in support of current operations.
§ Mr. Hanley
A need has been identified for a further small number of specialist Royal Air Force volunteer reserve personnel to serve on photographic interpretation duties in the United Kingdom in support of operations in Bosnia. One volunteer will be deployed immediately, and additional support will be required as the tasking develops. A maximum of four people will be required. These personnel are all volunteers; they are being called out under section 11(1) of the Reserve Forces Act 1980. This will be in addition to the seven reserve personnel already called out in support of operations.135W
