Cuts threaten Army

Amyas Morse, head of the National Audit Office, responds to a report by the National Auditing Office (NAO) which criticises the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for poor planning:

"The MoD is in the difficult position of needing to maximise financial savings by cutting headcount before it has detailed plans for how it will operate in the future.

"The department has acted decisively, but runs the risk that it will lose skills that it needs, worsening the current skills shortage.

"A more targeted approach is needed to restructure the workforce and retain the skills that will be required in future."
