star this property answer text <p>Each claim is different. Many are complex. It is inevitable that processing these can take a considerable time, for example while evidence is gathered from third party organisations and individuals.<br><br>In the case of the War Pension Scheme, there are no time limits for claiming, and claims for injuries dating back to World War Two are still being received. Assessing these claims involves locating 70 year old paper records, both Service and medical, and often requires a person to be medically examined so that a decision can be made based on up-to-date evidence. We attach much importance to dealing with all such claims as quickly as possible. Improvements have already been implemented and work is ongoing to further speed up the claims processing times.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government believes that the country owes a particular debt of gratitude to those Service personnel who suffer life-changing injuries.<br><br>The Ministry of Defence therefore continues to improve the support that it offers to such personnel. In particular we now operate a Seriously Injured Leavers Protocol (SIL) which aims to ensure the identification of and ongoing support for, those Service leavers deemed likely to be medically discharged due to a severe physical or mental disablement.<br><br>This identification is based upon defined major disabling medical criteria, whilst the support is organised through the closer working of MOD in-Service and post Service welfare groups. The MOD’s Veterans Welfare Service proactively intervenes for 24 months and then maintains contact as required but at least yearly on the anniversary of discharge. Full details of the SIL protocol are available at the following website: http://www.veterans-uk.info/welfare/protocol_new.html</p> more like this

The figure quoted reflects the media costs of the campaign, and includes approximately £1.2 million from the existing contracted budget. I have placed a copy of the marketing brief and analysis of results for the Step Up campaign in the Library of the House. The Start Thinking Soldier campaign took place four years before the current partnering arrangement between the Army and Capita started. Although formal evaluation is no longer held for Start Thinking Soldier, I have placed the marketing brief for the television advertising in the Library of the House.</p><p> </p><p>The Army is always recruiting, as it requires a constant flow of personnel to enter as privates and officer cadets, and then to gain the knowledge and experience to be promoted through the ranks. Consequently, it will always need to run recruitment campaigns. Army recruiting will continue to be supported by targeted campaigns, designed to highlight the variety of skills and trades available in both the Regular and Reserve forces.</p>
