There has been no announcement made in regard to any future plans for regular army redundancies beyond those, already announced under Tranches 1, 2 and 3 of the Armed Forces Redundancy Programme.

However, it should be noted that the selection of personnel for redundancy is not made on the basis of geographical location. Service personnel move between posts and locations regularly, and the location at which they will be serving on their final day of service may be different from that at which they were notified.
