THE origin of soldiers in the British Army will not be a factor in the redundancy process.

Asked how many Fijians were expected to be affected under the armed forces redundancy program, the British High Commission said it did not have the breakdown of the number of Fijians or Commonwealth citizens who would be affected

However, the commission said of the 1505 personnel who would be made redundant, 10 were navy medical officers, 1425 army personnel and 70 Royal Air Force medical and dental personnel.

"Those who did not apply for redundancy will be encouraged to transfer to trades," the commission said.

The commission also said all those who would be made redundant would have access to life skills training, housing and financial management briefings, and personal career consultancy for up to two years after leaving.
