star this property answer text <p>In order to deliver the battle-winning forces which the UK needs for the future, we are looking at developing a new &quot;offer&quot; for new joiners into the Armed Forces which meets the expectations of future recruits. It will ensure our future expenditure on personnel is sustainable and applied in the most efficient way. We have now begun the conceptual stages of evidence gathering and initial policy development which will determine whether the concept of a new offer is viable and when it could be delivered. We will engage stakeholders including the Armed Forces Pay Review Body as usual on our proposals when they mature. The new offer for new joiners will not impact on existing Service personnel.</p> more like this

This is is the largest scale operation that Defence plans to be able to deliver whilst continuing to conduct a range of concurrent &quot;fixed&quot; tasks such as defending the homeland, running military bases and training our military personnel. The scale and nature of the deployment means that there is no specific force generation ratio associated with it.</p> more like this
