To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many man training days were available to reserve forces in each of the last five years. [R]
§ Mr. Caplin
[holding answer 26 January 2004]The number of man training days available to the volunteer reserves varies by Service, category of reserve, unit role, level of readiness, and individual trade or specialism. In each of the last five years all volunteer reservists have had enough man training days available to qualify for bounty.
