HC Deb 23 October 2000 vol 355 cc37-8W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will place in the Library a copy of the Future Army Concept Paper. [132175]

Mr. Spellar

A declassified version of the Future Army Concept Paper 1999 has been placed in the Library of the House. This outlines the capabilities required by the Army in the 10–20 year time frame in the predicted future defence environment. It is underpinned by the principles and assumptions of the Strategic Defence Review and forms an important part of the Army's strategic planning process.
