The information is not held in the format requested. However, statistics on the number of Army personnel who have applied for redundancy under Tranche 3 will be available shortly. Information on the armed forces redundancy programme is published by Defence Statistics and is available from their website at:

The information published is not broken down by location. I will write to the hon. Member with the breakdown by local authority.
Service personnel who applied for redundancy under Tranches 1 and 2 have already left the Department.
The selection of an individual for redundancy cannot be assumed to imply that the post they occupy on the date of notification is no longer required and as such the geographical distribution of redundancy notices is not a valid basis for assumptions about the future distribution of military posts.
