RN redundancies: 360 compulsory
The Press Association reports that around 350 of the 1,020 Royal Navy tranche 1 redundancies are non-applicants. This proportion is broadly comparable with the Army and RAF redundancies announced on 1st September - 260 non-applicants out of 920 redundant Army personnel, and 490 non-applicants (including students withdrawn from pilot training or weapon system officer training) out of 930 RAF personnel.
810 sailors applied for redundancy but only 670 of them are being allowed to leave.
