Asked if the Prime Minister had been bluffing when he said the outcome of the review of the regiments might not be what people imagined and the outcome had been exactly as predicted, the PMS said that there had been a lot of speculation about today’s announcement. We had always told people to wait for the announcement rather than prejudge it. The review had been announced in July. The Army had wanted to look at its structure and today’s announcement was the outcome of that review.

Asked if the Prime Minister would be angry if one of his ministers or backbenchers called a fellow Member of Parliament a "back-stabbing coward". The PMS said that she would not comment on statements made by other parties on the floor of the house.

  1. I fully agree that we have disbanded far too many Reigments, and it is to our detriment, in the current world climate,
