The Defence Secretary will today announce a raft of changes to the role of the Territorial Army including possible rewards for companies who support reservists in their employment.
Philip Hammond is expected to announce a sharp rise in the number of reservists from around 19,000 to 30,000 by 2018, parallel with a reduction in the numbers of regular soldiers.
The Territorial Army will be renamed the Army Reserve and is likely to be given a special £42 million equipment budget.
Training will also be boosted, with more exercises held overseas, and smaller firms given financial incentives to let staff join up.
