Job cuts 'could leave MoD lacking the staff it needs to run itself'
The Ministry of Defence is planning to cut 54,000 jobs without knowing how the department will be able to run itself without them, warns a parliamentary watchdog.
The need to cuts costs quickly to plug a £38bn budget black hole has led the MoD to start the redundancy programme without a coherent strategy for the future, a report from the National Audit Office says.
This has increased the danger that the department will lose skilled people it cannot afford to replace. A halving in recruitment for the military and among civilians could also have the same effect.
