That this House believes that The Royal Welsh should be retained in its current format; notes that the 1st battalion was formed to represent the Royal Welch Fusiliers and that the 2nd battalion represents the Royal Regiment of Wales following its merger in 2006; and is of the opinion that any attempts to cut The Royal Welsh would be detrimental to the status of the armed forces in Wales and would breach previous undertakings that these time-honoured and distinguished regiments would be supported in continuing to exist in this form.
