star this property answer text <p>The future size and budget of each of the three Services will be reviewed as part of the next Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) and the next Spending Review, currently expected to take place in 2015. All three Services are focused on delivering the Future Force 2020 vision set out in the last SDSR, published in 2010. The Chiefs of Staff will be closely involved in any strategic decision which concerns both their Service and Defence more broadly. The Department also conducts an annual financial planning cycle (known as the Annual Budgeting Cycle) to ensure that plans remain aligned with budgets; the Chiefs of Staff are an integral part of this activity.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In order to facilitate a clearer public understanding the Ministry of Defence now uses the term &quot;requirement&quot; in place of &quot;service liability&quot; in its publications, although this is effectively the same thing. Likewise, we now refer to &quot;trained strength&quot; rather than &quot;funded strength&quot; and &quot;paid strength&quot;.</p><p>Information on the requirements and full time trained strengths of UK Armed Forces, including a breakdown by Service, is published in the UK Armed Forces Monthly Personnel Report.
