star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is supporting the Department for Transport (DfT) in developing contingency plans for the movement of Category 1 goods, from the EU to the UK, in the event of a no-deal Brexit. Category 1 goods are defined as '<em>those essential for the preservation of human and animal welfare and national security</em>'. DfT is procuring, on behalf of the rest of Government, freight capacity from the commercial market and remains on track to provide the required capacity from 31 October 2019, but it is right to prepare for all eventualities. MOD has therefore been requested to make available one of its freight vessels for use from 31 October 2019 should it be necessary. This vessel is one of the four Point Class Strategic Roll-on-Roll-off vessels (SRR), which are operated by Foreland Shipping Limited under a MOD contract. If this contingency plan is utilised, the intention is to import the Category 1 goods the SRR carries through Marchwood Port, using the MOD contract with the port operator Solent Gateway Limited.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The application and inflow figures for the UK Regular Armed Forces between 1 July 2018 and 31 June 2019 can be found in the following tables. As with any organisation, there is a period of time between applying to join the Armed Forces and beginning training, and therefore the two tables are not directly comparable. Application figures may appear high compared to inflow, however it can take months to translate an application into an enlistment. In many cases this will be based on individual needs, for example due to finishing education or planning start dates around family commitments. High application figures demonstrate positive reaction to advertising campaigns, and the appeal of the Armed Forces. However, given the nature of the Armed Forces, stringent entry standards are required.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Month</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Jul 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Aug 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Sep 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Oct 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Nov 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Dec 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Jan 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Feb 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Mar 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Apr 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>May 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Jun 19</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Applications</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>12,320</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>11,840</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>10,860</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>10,300</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>13,860</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>9,570</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>18,730</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>13,550</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>13,230</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>9,810</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>10,260</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>10,500</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Month</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Jul 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Aug 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Sep 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Oct 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Nov 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Dec 18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Jan 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Feb 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Mar 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Apr 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>May 19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Jun 19</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Inflow</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>770</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>480</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2,260</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>1,030</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>900</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>210</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>1,440</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>980</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2,240</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>630</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>1,320</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>1,260</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Notes/Caveats:</p><ul><li>Figures for inflow have been provided by Defence Statistics;</li><li>Application figures are based on single Service estimates; official statistics have not been produced by Defence Statistics;</li><li>If a candidate has made more than one application, each application will be counted separately;</li><li>Intake comprises all personnel joining the Armed Forces either as new entrants or re-entrants.</li><li>UK Regular Forces do not include Gurkhas, Full Time Reserve Service (FTRS) personnel and mobilised reservists;</li><li>Figures have been rounded to the nearest 10, though numbers ending in a “5” have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 20 to prevent the systematic bias caused by always rounding numbers upwards;</li><li>Figures exclude Commonwealth applicants to the Army.</li></ul><p> </p><p> </p>
