star this property answer text <p>We are confident that there are no significant safety or environmental concerns (radiological or conventional) with the current storage processes. All laid-up submarines at the Rosyth and Devonport Dockyards undergo regular inspection and maintenance to comply with the very highest safety and environmental standards. This includes continual monitoring, annual surveys and periodic docking for re-preservation of the hulls. All aspects of afloat storage, including potential environmental impacts and radiological safety, are regulated by the Defence Nuclear Safety Regulator.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The new Office for Veterans Affairs (OVA) will coordinate Departments and work with Local Authorities, Devolved Governments and charities to deliver more joined-up support for veterans. This builds on the foundations set by the 'Strategy for our Veterans' published at:</p><p>https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/strategy-for-our-veterans</p><p>for which we engaged with Service charities for ideas on how we can further enhance support for our veterans. The creation of the OVA is the first time that veterans' affairs will be overseen by a dedicated Ministerial team in the Cabinet Office. It will enable better coordination of the full machinery of Government and other partners to improve the lives of veterans.</p><p>The independent Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust administers £10 million per annum which allows organisations including charities to apply for grants that support the Armed Forces Community.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As explained to the hon. Member in the answer given by my hon. Friend the Minister for the Armed Forces (Rt Hon Mark Lancaster) on 13 November 2018, to Question 188918: <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2018-11-06/188918/" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2018-11-06/188918/</a>, citizens of the British Overseas Territory hold one of six types of British nationality which are eligible to apply to join the British Armed Forces, in which they serve as part of the British cohort. There is therefore no requirement to hold discussions with the Home Secretary about the residency requirement for citizens of British Overseas Territories wishing to join the UK Armed Forces.</p><p> </p><p>However, for security reasons the Armed Forces continue to have UK residency criteria to ensure the appropriate security standards which apply to all applicants, regardless of nationality, can be met. This will vary depending on the service and role being applied for, but applications are considered on a case by case basis.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>In order to safeguard operational effectiveness, the Armed Forces are exempt from the provisions of the 1998 National Minimum Wage (NMW) Act. Nevertheless, we aim to ensure that the Armed Forces are remunerated in line with NMW provisions.</p><p>The daily pay offered to Part-Time Volunteer Reserve (PTVR) personnel is derived from the equivalent annual salary paid to their Regular counterparts. The annual salary is made up of base pay plus X-Factor, the latter reflecting the different conditions in Service life experienced by members of the Armed Forces compared to conditions in civilian life, averaged over a whole career and across all three Services. All pay rates, including X-Factor percentages, are recommended by the independent Armed Forces' Pay Review Body (AFPRB). At present, full-time Regular personnel are paid X-Factor at 14½% and PTVR personnel get 5% X-Factor. In giving their recommendations, the AFPRB give due consideration to the needs of the Services to recruit and retain suitably able, motivated and qualified people.</p><p>Following the Government's acceptance of the AFPRB's most recent recommendations (HCWS1770), the current annual starting salary for a Regular private or equivalent (pay increment OR2-1) has risen to £20,000 p.a., whilst the equivalent PTVR annual salary, derived using the lower level of X-Factor, has risen to £18,341 p.a. PTVR daily rates of pay are calculated by dividing the annual salary by 365¼, and a day's pay is earned through voluntary attendance of eight hours or more. For an eight-hour day, this is the equivalent of £6.28 per hour. In addition, PTVR personnel are provided with additional payments in lieu of untaken leave, equivalent to just over 10% of their pay; they may also claim an annual tax-free training bounty of up £470 in their first year of service where they meet their unit's minimum training requirements (approximately 30 days' relevant attendance). When PTVR personnel are called-up, for example for operational deployment, they are paid the same annual salary as their Regular counterparts, i.e. the rate inclusive of the higher level of X-Factor, and they also gain access to the same range of allowances payable for Regular service.</p><p>This Government will continue to work with the independent AFPRB to ensure that all members of the Armed Forces are fairly remunerated for the work that they do.</p>
