Ministry of Defence to outsource more activities

These include army recruitment, construction and running of bases, and catering.

The aim is to save £250m over ten years, by removing expensively-trained combat troops from administrative roles.

The reality is that the new jobs will likely be taken on by the more than 10,000 soliders (of 101,000 today) who are expected to lose their jobs in the next four years, and who will then be hired by the outsourcers who will take over the MoD contracts.

While firing 10,000 full time soldiers, the intention is also to continue to recruit 9,000 part time (‘territorial’) soldiers each year.
