UK Operations in Iraq, which had been published on 10 Aug 06 (as HC 1241). The Response acknowledges that: “Around 10% of our Forces deployed since the mid-1990s have been from the Armed Forces Reserves.”. The document concludes with “a fundamental question” concerning the structure, training and equipment of
the Armed Forces. Comment: There is much useful background material in the Response, which is available from TSO and from The Parliamentary Bookshop (Tel: 020-7219 3890), as HC 1603, for £4:50. (Source: DNA DEFENCE NEWS ANALYSIS, Issue 0640, 23 Oct 06).
