Data prior to April 2012 for the Future Reserve 2020 (FR20) Volunteer Reserve is unavailable. It is, therefore, not possible to estimate the average length of service for the FR20 Volunteer Reserve population.

As an alternative, I refer the noble Lord to the answer I gave on 26 January 2016 to Question HL5059 to the noble Lord The Lord Empey, which sets out details of FR20 Volunteer Reserve strength retention.
