§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
asked the Secretary of Sate for Defence to what extent the changes in the Territorial Army will affect civilian employment in Northern Ireland, Scotland and other parts of the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Reynolds
Until discussions with the Council of the Territorial and Auxiliary Forces Associations are completed, it is not possible to say how the employment of civilians working for Territorial Army and Auxiliary Forces Associations will be affected by the proposed reorganisation. The effect on civilians employed by the Army Department is being assessed, and I cannot give an estimate at present.
