The Government is committed to maintaining an Army that is able to field a war-fighting division.
Under the Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015 the Army's principal contribution to Joint Force 2025 is a division of up to 40,000 regular and reserve troops. In addition, within its remaining total force strength the Army would need to retain the ability to deliver its national resilience and fixed tasks, and to deploy a follow-on force.
All aspects of Defence will be considered in the National Security Capability Review, including how the Army will deliver the division. The Review is on-going and no decisions have been put to Ministers.
