A group of backbench Tory MPs are planning to vote on a rebel amendment which could delay the government's plan to reduce the number of regular soldiers in the Army.
The main aims of Army 2020 are as follows:
- Army to be reduced from 102,000 to 82,000 by 2020
- Army Reserve (new name for the Territorial Army) numbers to increase from 19,000 to 30,000 by 2018
This is part of the 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review which aims to plug £38 billion hole in the defence budget.
