DEFENCE – TERRITORIAL ARMY CUTS – 17 November 1998

Dr Julian Lewis: Is it not ironic that the decimation of the Territorial Army has been announced so soon after Armistice Day? Was not the Secretary of State's language redolent of that of a first world war general trying to justify colossal losses? Will the Secretary of State not be remembered for what he has done to our volunteer forces today as a cut-price Douglas Haig of the 1990s?
