Select Committee on Defence First Report


6. The Government have a tight timetable for the implementation for TA restructuring. The aim is to finalise the establishment of the Battalions by the new year,[23] and have the restructured TA up and running by 1 July.[24] The outcome of the review of the TAVRAs is to be with Ministers by 1 April.[25] This is an ambitious programme. We expect the Ministry of Defence to ensure that throughout the implementation process the disruption to the training and support of Territorials be kept to a minimum, and we return to how to measure this disruption in our conclusions.
