The spend figures requested on recruitment campaigns for the Reserve Forces are set out in the following table:
|Financial year (FY)||Total spend (£ million)|
|2013-14 to date||5.1|
We are committed to growing the Army Reserve. In July, we set our new offer to potential Reservists and employers with increased incentives and enhanced training opportunities alongside Regulars in the UK and abroad. The way is now clear for a sustained recruitment campaign over the next 12 to 18 months, to build the numbers we need to expand the Army Reserve. Expenditure for FY 2013-14 is therefore likely to be greater than last year as we embark on that campaign, to meet the target set in Future Reserves 2020.
