Penny Mordaunt - Ministry of Defence

A new call-out order has been made under section 56(1B) of the Reserve Forces Act 1996 to enable Reservists to continue to be called into permanent service in support of the United Kingdoms contribution to the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP).

Over 100 Reservists have been called out for UN operations in Cyprus over the last
12 months. Over the period this new order will be in force we anticipate calling out around 150 Reservists, who will be fully integrated with their Regular colleagues. The use of Reserves in Cyprus is now considered routine business and is fully in line with our policy of having more capable, usable, integrated and relevant Reserve Forces. It provides Reservists with an excellent opportunity to fully integrate with their paired Regular unit, providing a worthwhile, rewarding and valuable contribution to the UN peacekeeping effort.

Currently, we plan on calling out only willing and available Reservists who have the support of their employer.

The order takes effect from 11 December 2015 and ceases to have effect on 10 December 2016.
