To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 7 December 2017 to Question 116562, how many of the total Army Reserve strength in (a) April 2013, (b) April 2014, (c) April 2015, (d) April 2016 and (e) 2017 were ex-regulars on the Regular to Reserve bonus scheme; and if he will make a statement.
Annual bounty data for the Army Reserve prior to financial year 2014-15 is not held in the required format and the data cannot be assured. This is due to a combination of changes in the Reserve structure from the Territorial Army to the Army Reserve under Future Reserves 2020 programme at the end of 2013 and a different process for the award of bounties prior to that date. These changes also mean that information would not be directly comparable.
