The Conservative MP and former Army Colonel Bob Stewart has told Daybreak of his concern over the latest round of cuts to the Army that will be announced this morning.
He said: "The Army is extremely small now...It really hurts me. You need an army to be used in an emergency."
Some 4,480 military personnel have been made redundant today in the latest round of army job cuts, the Ministry of Defence said.
The Ministry of Defence will set out the number of posts it will cut from the service in order to reduce the size of the Army by a fifth.
