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.

The table shows the number of voluntary redundancy applications under Tranche 3 by Army Service personnel based in Wales, broken down by Local Authority area.
|Local Authority Area||Number of Personnel Who Volunteered for Redundancy|
|Isle of Anglesey||(1)—|
|Neath Port Talbot||(1)—|
|Rhondda Cynon, Taff||(1)—|
|The Vale of Glamorgan||10|
|(1) Zero or rounded to zero. (2) Fewer than 5.|
Where rounding has been used, totals and sub-totals have been rounded separately and so may not equal the sums of their rounded parts. When rounding to the nearest 10, numbers ending in “5” have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 20 to prevent systematic bias.
The figures in the above table are for those who applied for redundancy under Tranche 3 and who were based in Wales at
The figures are based on Service personnel's stationed location and not their location of residence. Personnel deployed on operations to an area away from their stationed location are shown against their most recent stationed location.
