answer text <p>Each branch of the Armed Forces has a distinctive brand that needs to be marketed separately in order to attract the best candidates. <br><br>Capturing the cost of recruiting across the Armed Forces is a complex and resource-intensive task. For financial year (FY) 2010-11, when both the recruitment budget and recruitment targets were below normal levels, these calculations were not carried out. The costs of recruiting programmes for FYs 2009-10, 2011-12 and 2012-13 are set out in the following table. The cost of recruiting in FY 2013-14 will be available in early 2015.<br><br></p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><strong>Financial Year</strong></td><td><strong>Royal Navy (£)</strong></td><td><strong>Army (£)</strong></td><td><strong>RAF (£)</strong></td><td><strong>Total (£)</strong></td></tr><tr><td>2009-10</td><td>41,475,281</td><td>138,743,300</td><td>51,298,179</td><td>231,516,760</td></tr><tr><td>2011-12</td><td>32,017,364</td><td>134,595,989</td><td>38,702,993</td><td>205,316,346</td></tr><tr><td>2012-13</td><td>33,228,059</td><td>122,756,649</td><td>35,430,723</td><td>191,415,431</td></tr></tbody></table><p>As reductions have been made to force levels recruitment levels have been adjusted but not stopped as the Services are required to keep recruiting to maintain the right skills.</p>

answer text <p>Between its launch in March 2012 to 31 March 2014, the Army has paid Capita £100.380 million for the Recruiting Partnering Project. The Recruiting Partnering Project remains within the overall agreed cost of £1.360 <ins class="ministerial">billion. </ins><del class="ministerial">million.</del><br /><br />My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence (Philip Hammond) set out on 14 January 2014 the cost of Capita providing a new Information Technology platform as part of the Recruiting Partnering Project (Official Report: column 716). At the time, these costs were expected to be around £47.7 million directly linked to the change of hosting provision. Since this statement, these costs have reduced to around £42.9 million. <br /><br />As previously stated by the Secretary of State on 14 January, there has been an additional cost of around £1 million per month to run the Capita system. This includes costs for additional manpower.</p> more like this

answer text <p>In 2012, the average length of deployment for both Destroyers and Frigates was seven months. Currently, deployments are between seven and seven and a half months.<br><br>From early 2015, the Royal Navy will introduce nine-month deployments for those Destroyers and Frigates undertaking patrol tasks in the South Atlantic and the Gulf. The move to longer deployments will mean fewer generation cycles; fewer deployments in the longer term; less disruption, and a better ability for individuals and families to plan. A package of additional benefits will be in place for personnel: two weeks' pre-deployment leave; two weeks' leave at the mid point of their deployment, and four or five weeks' leave on their return, depending on which main leave period this falls in. It is planned that other deployments will remain between seven and seven and a half months.</p> more like this
