We are publishing today the new Armed Force overarching personnel strategy (AFOPS) main document.

The AFOPS provides a clear sense of direction for Armed Forces personnel policies. It does so by providing a framework of five strategic themes and some 28 personnel strategic guidelines. These cover the full spectrum of the service personnel policy agenda. The main document also highlights the challenges we will face in attracting and retaining our people for the future.

AFOPS is intended to deliver real and tangible effect. The new main document looks at the achievements of the past two or so years relating to service personnel and further lays out the actions which will be taken forward in the most critical areas during the next two years.

We have placed copies of the document in the Library of the House.
