HL Deb 27 March 2002 vol 633 cc55-6WA
Lord Vivian

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have any plans to cut any brigade and battle group level exercises in 2002–03; if there are plans to reduce the number of exercises, which of these exercises will be withdrawn from the training programme; and for what reason. [HL3278]

Lord Bach

We have yet to finalise our plans for brigade and battle group exercises for 2002–03, but no direction has been given to cancel any exercises at this time.
