The recruitment of overseas soldiers and veterans is the biggest priority for the Government, according to Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon.
The Government is working on the details of the closure, which would affect around 400 staff and around 70 jobs.
The decision comes after the recruitment of around 20,000 overseas service members and their dependents was criticised.
The decision comes just weeks after Prime Minister Theresa May called for a new recruitment system to ensure that the Government’s priority overseas recruitment priority, soldiers and vets, is met.
At the moment, there is no such system and a spokesman for the Department of Defence told the Independent: “The Government has made clear that it will work to ensure the priority of overseas recruitment for soldiers and other military personnel is met through the new recruitment plan.”
The spokesman said the Government is committed to meeting the Government of Great Britain’s (GGB) recruitment priority for all soldiers and their families.
He said: “This Government has also pledged to work to achieve a recruitment plan that ensures the priority for overseas recruitment of military personnel for the next parliament.”
However, the spokesman added that “this Government will continue to work with partners in the UK to improve the quality and quality of recruitment”.
In January, the Government announced plans to introduce a new system to meet the Governments recruitment priority.
However the spokesman said that, until that system was rolled out, the UK would continue to recruit overseas soldiers in a way that meets the Government targets.
On Wednesday, May said she wanted to see a new recruiting system in place “as quickly as possible”.
The Government said the new system would be rolled out as soon as possible and it was due to be in place by the end of next year. “
As a result, I will ensure that this Government takes immediate action to implement the new plan.”
