On 17 November, Kevan spoke for the Opposition in a Westminster Hall debate on the future of the Reserve Forces.

During his remarks, Kevan said, “As a former Defence Minister, I have seen at first hand the contribution of both, and in Iraq and Afghanistan, the contribution that reservists made, not just in medical services but on the frontline, was sometimes overlooked. We ought to pay tribute to them.”

He went on to add , “Events over the weekend show that the threats we face change quickly, and that some of the skills that we need—in cyber, intelligence and other capabilities—must be procured in the regular forces, but the reserve forces can also make a contribution.”
