§ Lady Olga Maitland
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what review is being undertaken of the objectives contained within "Options for Change" in the light of the deployment in Bosnia and the possibility of further deployment of British troops.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
The Government's plans for force restructuring were developed in the recognition that instabilities and risks to our security would continue to exist in Europe and elsewhere. Nothing in recent events, including the commitment of troops to Bosnia, has invalidated those plans.
