I think it was based of some general statements by Sir Michael Fallon and has been taken a little out of context.

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/d...ining-contract

Published 28 June 2017

"While addressing the challenges which face today’s armies, the Defence Secretary also announced new measures to meet global information and cyber threats by bolstering and reorganising the Army’s Royal Corps of Signals and Intelligence Corps.

The Royal Signals will receive an additional regiment to enhance its cyber capabilities, so it can distribute information rapidly and effectively; while the Intelligence Corps will be organised to focus on counter-intelligence, security, and cultural understanding."

But I suppose anything is possible with the changing world of "cyber war" and our own governments need to save money.

Indeed both are reorganising but not merging.

In the Signals case they re-roling the single Electronic Warfare Regt to grow 2 cyber regiments.
