Territorial Army to cease training to save money

The Territorial Army is to temporarily halt training in order to save money. Weekend exercises and other training will be halted to save money, when you find out it will save £20 million you wonder just how cash strapped the MOD actually is after all. A six-month halt in training will mean that soldiers will not get paid. The change is because money is needed for operations like Afghanistan but as TA soldiers regularly serve in Afghanistan and thus will presumably need extra training when they go there how can this really save any money in reality?
