Strategy for combating army recruitment shortfall

We're waiting for David Gee to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Could you please send me a copy of the document that sets out the army's current recruitment challenges and its strategy to overcome them?

Can you also please tell me between which dates the army has lowered the minimum literacy requirement for entry from Entry Level 2 to Entry Level 1 in the past ten years.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

David Gee

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Could you please let me know when you expect to be able to reply to this?

Thank you

Hello

Have you had the time you need to consider this request yet?

Yours sincerely,

David Gee

Hello again

This request was made on 3 March 2018, so is now four months old. A month after you sent a holding reply, I asked whether you had had chance to look at the request, and I did not hear from you.

Can you please tell me when you expect to be able to respond to the request?

If I have not heard from you at all by this Friday I will make a formal complaint. I hope to hear from you before then, though.

Thank you.

David Gee

James, Amy Mrs (Army Sec-Pers-Cap-ARTD), Ministry of Defence
