Asked for any further information on the possible amalgamation of several regiments, the PMOS said the Army Board would consider these matters. The broad principles would be set out, which were getting the balance for the need of the modern Army to have flexibility, whilst respecting tradition. How the Army Board decided was a matter for them, and then it would make recommendations.

Asked if the Prime Minister raised the future of the Green Howards with the Army, the PMOS said he was not aware he had done so, but it was a matter for the Army.

Asked if there was a date for the Army Review Board, the PMOS said he did not think it would be this week.

Asked if the decision would be taken by the Prime Minister, and not Geoff Hoon, the PMOS said they were matters that would end up on the Prime Minister’s desk.

Asked to clarify that this would be a political decision, the PMOS replied that we had never denied that this would be a matter for ministers.
