HC Deb 29 June 1998 vol 315 c13W
Mr. Paul Marsden

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the future of the 5 Shropshire and Herefordshire Light Infantry and the Royal Mercian & Lancastrian Yeomanry Territorial Army battalions. [47681]

Dr. Reid

The future role of all arms and services within the Territorial Army will be decided as part of the Strategic Defence Review. An announcement will be made as soon as possible, but it may be some time before we can say how individual units will be affected by the outcome of the Review.
