In response to the head of the Army's warning over potential cuts to the military budget ahead of the Chancellor's spending review later this month, the Ministry of Defence has said:
Like all Whitehall departments we are currently negotiating our financial settlement for the 2015-16 Spending Review.
Although no final decisions have been taken we have been clear that we would first & foremost seek to find genuine efficiencies that would enable us protect front-line capabilities and protect military manpower numbers.
Whilst this process is ongoing it would be inappropriate to comment further.
