Perhaps the most significant aspect was the cut in manpower levels. The armed forces were reduced to a size that had not been seen since 1938. The army was reduced to a little over 100,000 men (small enough to fit into Wembley Stadium); the navy was cut back to just over thirty ships; the air force was substantially reduced. By the end of the 1990s the British were spending on defence, in per capita terms, only three times more than the nation spent on the National Lottery, or about what it spent on package holidays in the sun.

The armed forces were reduced to a size that had not been seen since 1938. The army was reduced to a little over 100,000 men (small enough to fit into Wembley Stadium); the navy was cut back to just over thirty ships; the air force was substantially reduced. By the end of the 1990s the British were spending on defence, in per capita terms, only three times more than the nation spent on the National Lottery, or about what it spent on package holidays in the sun. The consequences of this reduction in force strengths, the largest since the 1920s, came home in the Kosovo War in 1999.

As a postlude, in 1963 the Labour MP Anthony Wedgwood-Benn (later to restyle himself Tony Benn) persuaded Parliament to allow peers not to take up their seats in the Lords (he wished to disclaim the unwelcome peerage inherited from his father which had forced him out of the Commons). This change was soon used by two senior Conservatives, Lord Hailsham and Lord Home, to transfer to the Commons.
