British army cuts: final round of redundancies to be announced
Staff writerThe government will announce the final round of army redundancies on Thursday, ending a period of "significant uncertainty", the head of the British army has said.
The defence secretary, Philip Hammond, will release details of the job losses in the House of Commons, a spokesman for the ministry of defence confirmed.
It has been reported that the Gurkha regiment will be affected by the redundancies.
The regular army is being cut from 102,000 to 82,000 by 2020, while the newly-renamed Army Reserve – formerly the Territorial Army – is being expanded from 19,000 to 30,000.
