Reduce the employee numbers of the Ministry of Defence

Comment 28th July 2010

The idea is to redress somewhat the balance between MOD employees and mambers of the armed services. I believe that, if fully manned, the armed forces number about 250,000 peraonnel.There are nearly 90,000 MOD personnel "supporting" them. This means that an infantry company of 100 soldiers in the battlefield has 37 MOD personnel at their desks in Whitehall.

This ratio of 1:2.7 is really too much.

Why does this matter?

To reduce the number of MOD "support" staff to more realistic levels with the associated savings of expenditure.
