Defence Questions: Capita contract for Army recruitment

The UK Government has outsourced the duties of recruitment for our Armed Forces to private firm Capita – the same firm that has been awarded government contracts in the past for benefit payments.

Since they have had this contract they have missed targets for recruitment. That is why I wanted the minister to tell the House how much it would cost us to withdraw the contract and if the UK Government has any plans to do so.

We cannot have an underfunded or an under-staffed Armed Forces and if Capita cannot recruit the people we need they should have the contract removed.
