While the futures of a number of UK Army bases around the world were clarified within the strategic defence and security review, the future of the British Army training support unit (BATSUB) was not specifically mentioned. We can confirm that the Ministry of Defence intends to retain BATSUB within Price barracks and that BATSUB will continue to support training in Belize. Like much of the remainder of the Army, however, BATSUB will be subject to a number of changes over the next few years. This will be done in full consultation with the Belizean authorities.
