To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he last had discussions regarding the Territorial Army with the Chief of General Staff.518W
§ Mr. Neubert
The process of consultation on service matters is a continuous one, both through the formal Defence Committee structure and official channels. In addition my right hon. Friend and hon. colleagues take up a number of invitations to visit Territorial Army conferences and units. In this way the Territorial Army has been the subject of much discussion, reflecting the importance that we attach to the vital role it plays in the defence of the nation.
