HC Deb 27 February 1998 vol 307 c376W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many qualified lawyers are employed by Army Legal Services(a) in the UK, (b) in Germany and (c) elsewhere; and if he will make a statement. [31475]

Dr. Reid

The establishment is expected to increase over the next year to approximately 70, reflecting an increased workload, consequent upon changes to national and European legislation and a major reorganisation of the Army disciplinary system arising out of the Armed Forces Act 1996.
