MoD changes to slim down management structure, says Fox

The government is to announce plans to tackle waste, red tape and inter-service rivalry at the MoD.

It is expected to recommend a reduction in the number of senior officers, with individual service heads losing their places on the MoD's most senior decision-making body.

Before announcing the review to parliament, Defence Secretary Liam Fox told the BBC he wanted to slim down the management structure and prevent micro-managing by politicians.
