To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many reserves have been called up for service since the Strategic Defence and Security Review 2010; where those reserves have served; and in what capacity those reserves served.

Since 2010 more than 10,000 Reservists have been mobilised in a variety of roles on operations worldwide including Iraq, Afghanistan and the London 2012 Olympics.

As at 28 February 2015, around 400 Reservists are mobilised. More than 60 Reservists have been mobilised so far to assist in efforts to resolve the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone. The majority of these are Army Reservists filling medical roles in the Kerry Town Treatment Unit and who I saw depart the UK last December, from Brize Norton.
