HL Deb 21 February 2005 vol 669 c169WA
Lord Astor of Hever

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the regimental number of the planned commando engineer regiment; and when is its planned formation date. [HL1080]

Lord Bach

The new regiment will be called 24 Commando Engineer Regiment.

The detailed plans for the implementation of the Future Army Structure that my right honourable friend the Secretary of State announced last year are being worked through. We envisage that the majority of changes associated with this major transformation will take place over the next five years, taking account of operational commitments and our estate strategy.
