star this property answer text <p>The Regular Reserve Force comprises the Royal Fleet Reserve, Army Regular Reserve and Royal Air Force Regular Reserve. Many of these former members of the Regular Forces retain a liability to be called up for service, the duration of which is determined by their previous contract type, length of Regular service and reason for leaving. They meet two functions: some are available to provide specialist capability for a limited time after leaving Regular service; all form a strategic reserve for resilience and regeneration of our Armed Forces in case of national crisis. In general, ex-Regular reservists have only been called upon to support routine operations if they have volunteered or when volunteer reservists have not been available.</p><p>With our growing numbers of Tri-Service Volunteer Reserves, which had a trained strength of 27,520 as at 1 May 2016, and our ability to recall ex-Regulars we are confident that we would have the resources necessary to meet our requirements in times of tension and war.</p><p>Strength figures for the Reserve Forces, including the Regular Reserve Force, are set out in Monthly Service Personnel Statistics on Gov.uk at https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/uk-armed-forces-monthly-service-personnel-statistics-2016</p>

star this property answer text <p>Since 2015 the UK has conducted a series of successful exercises to support our ability to assess the efficiency and limitations of potential warhead reduction treaty verification technologies. The UK has drawn together its bilateral verification research programmes with Norway and the US to form a quadrilateral research initiative with Norway, the US and Sweden. Additionally it makes its nuclear disarmament verification research available to the International Partnership on Nuclear Disarmament Verification, the majority of members of which are non-nuclear weapons states. The Ministry of Defence has an active Arms Control Verification Research programme, at the Atomic Weapons Establishment. I am withholding further information on resources as its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice commercial interests.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Our Armed Forces already undertake high quality training on Women, Peace and Security (WPS) and the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI) but a training needs analysis (TNA), which will report shortly, is assessing the level of future WPS/PSVI training required for UK and overseas militaries. Every year around 150 military officers from more than 50 countries attend UK Defence Academy courses that include lectures on WPS; and students on the Advanced Command and Staff Course are offered an additional two week 'elective' on &quot;Gender, War, and Armed Forces&quot;, which some of the overseas officers choose to attend.</p><p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is also delivering WPS and PSVI in-country training to foreign militaries through the deployment of short term training teams and deployable experts, and via our overseas training establishments. The MOD is developing a standardised core syllabus for the training on WPS and PSVI delivered to foreign forces, which is expected to be finalised in January 2017. Building on the core syllabus, the training is then theatre-specific and tailored to the needs of troops being deployed, based on the level of training they have already received.</p><p>The MOD does not routinely publish its training materials but, as part of an accreditation process, it will share course materials with allies in NATO, the European Union, and the United Nations.</p>
