Consultation description

This consultation originally ran from 20 March to 16 April 2015. Due to restrictions associated with publicising consultations during the pre-election period, MOD has decided to re-open this consultation from 27 May to 18 June 2015, to allow further time for users to comment.

The Ministry of Defence publishes a wide range of armed forces personnel statistics. The main purpose of these statistics is; to measure the performance of the MOD against government and Parliament targets, and also to inform general debate in government, Parliament and the wider public. Our mission is to produce high quality statistics, analysis and advice to help Britain make better decisions.

Following an internal review of MOD tri-service publications content we are seeking further user views on the proposed changes to the publications. Further details on the proposed changes and process can be found in the consultation document.
