Army: Reserve Forces

Question for Ministry of Defence

UIN 52438, tabled on 21 September 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many part-time volunteer major generals there are in the Army Reserve as of September 2021; and how many there are planned to be after the implementation of the Integrated Review.

Answered on

18 October 2021

Trained FR20 Reserves of Paid Rank Major General, as at 1 July 2021:

Major General5

Notes/ Caveats:

1. The Trained FR20 population in the table consists of Group A Army Reserves, some Sponsored Reserves and those personnel serving on FTRS contracts who were previously Army Reservists.

2. The figure above includes Major Generals that contribute towards the previously defined FR20 population and excludes those personnel who do not. E.g., those Reservists on service complaint panels and the Governor of Edinburgh Castle.

3. Figures are as at 1 July 2021 in line with the protocols for release of personnel statistics.

Detailed plans for the future structure of the Army are still being refined. There will be announcements made on our intent for both the regular and reserve force in due course.
