HC Deb 04 July 1997 vol 297 c303W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will consider changes to the regimental system as part of the Strategic Defence Review. [6839]

Dr. Reid

The Strategic Defence Review will examine how the Army should be structured to meet our nation's interests and commitments, taking full account of the recognized strengths of the Regimental System. It would, however, be premature to speculate whether the review will alter any aspect of the system.
