answer text <p>All allegations of rape and sexual assault will be thoroughly investigated by either the civil or Service police, depending upon who has jurisdiction. The following table provides details of the number of allegations of rape and sexual assault made within the chain of command against members of the Armed Forces in each of the last four years as recorded by the Service Police.

Member for Bridgend (Mrs Moon), for sexual assault referrals in the years between 2010 and 2012 (although 2012 was only for part of the year). This is because the term sexual assault has been expanded to cover the offences of indecent assault and sexual activity with a child. In addition, the figures provided in a response given by my predecessor (Mark Francois) on 30 November 2012 (Official Report, column 555W) again to the hon.

answer text <p>It is assumed that the hon. 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. A full analysis by year would require the examination of individual records and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.</p> more like this
