Independent all-ranks staff association for regular, reserve and veteran UK armed forces personnel

The BAFF line on Manning Control

From one of our earlier articles about Manning Control, a policy used by the British Army to dismiss soldiers who are considered to be "not fit for a full army career":

We accept the principle that the Army and other services are entitled to manage personnel who for one reason or another are not fully effective, and ultimately to terminate their careers early. We also recognise the seriousness of the problem being experienced by commanding officers who are expected to hold injured or unfit personnel on their strength. But we insist on everyone affected by this policy being treated fairly and with consideration, as was not always the case when manning control was used before.

The BAFF chairman gave a BBC radio interview about this earlier in the year.
