Motion text

That this House notes with grave concern that the Executive Committee of the Army Board is this week considering cutting a battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers; further notes that the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers recruits in the constituencies of 105 honourable Members, and that the 1st battalion of the regiment won more awards in the invasion of Iraq than any other battle-group; further notes that the Regiment's 2nd battalion is the most Northern Ireland experienced light role battalion in the Army and will at the end of its current tour have completed 41 months operational duty in the Province out of a total of 51 months; and believes that the current over-stretch of the infantry means that no infantry battalions should be cut from the British Army.
