star this property answer text <p>Between its launch in March 2012 to 31 March 2014, the Army has paid Capita £100.380 million for the Recruiting Partnering Project. The Recruiting Partnering Project remains within the overall agreed cost of £1.360 <ins class="ministerial">billion. </ins><del class="ministerial">million.</del><br /><br />My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence (Philip Hammond) set out on 14 January 2014 the cost of Capita providing a new Information Technology platform as part of the Recruiting Partnering Project (Official Report: column 716). At the time, these costs were expected to be around £47.7 million directly linked to the change of hosting provision. Since this statement, these costs have reduced to around £42.9 million. <br /><br />As previously stated by the Secretary of State on 14 January, there has been an additional cost of around £1 million per month to run the Capita system. This includes costs for additional manpower.</p> more like this

Member is referring to cases where administrative action was taken, under AGAI Chapter 67 or the equivalent regulations in the Naval Service and RAF, against Service personnel who had been in receipt of a simple police caution, after the amendment to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 made by section 49 the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act which came into force on 19 December 2008. <br><br>The range of administrative sanctions which could have been applied in such circumstances is extremely wide, ranging from a formal warning to termination of service.

In February I announced LIBOR funding of £40 million to support charities which assist veterans with housing needs in order to build new homes, buy new accommodation and renovate old facilities. Projects are expected to include hostels and half-way houses for veterans who have fallen on hard times, supported housing for the wounded, injured and sick, and long-term care homes.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence uses a process called “manpower substitution” to engage temporary staff at agreed fixed rates on a national basis through a number of contracts. Manpower substitutes are employed for up to 11 months to fill vacant, funded posts. The majority are brought in to fill medical and dental requirements at military medical centres to cover for military positions that are vacant due to deployment into operational theatre. This enables the medical services to continue to provide the best possible care to members of the Armed Forces.</p><p> </p><p>The five companies most frequently used by the Ministry of Defence in Financial Year 2013-14 to provide temporary workers, and the associated fees paid to each, are presented in the following table:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Company</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Type of worker</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Number of Temporary Workers</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Fees Paid</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>HoneyBee</p></td><td><p>Medical &amp; Dental</p></td><td><p>790</p></td><td><p>£3.46m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>CastleRock Ltd</p></td><td><p>Medical &amp; Dental</p></td><td><p>490</p></td><td><p>£2.61m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Capita Resourcing</p></td><td><p>Interim Professionals</p></td><td><p>320</p></td><td><p>£2.07m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Hayes</p></td><td><p>Medical &amp; Dental</p></td><td><p>190</p></td><td><p>£0.59m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Reed</p></td><td><p>Clerical &amp; Admin</p></td><td><p>160</p></td><td><p>£0.11m</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The figures provided for Capita Resourcing cover the period from April 2013 to March 2014.
