star this property answer text <p>All claims received are considered on their individual merits and in line with the Department's legal liability. Part of this process is to take a view as to whether a claim falls outside the limitation period. Records are not kept of the number of claims in which the Courts have heard limitation cases in which the Claimant is seeking discretion in the application of the time limit relevant to their claim against the Department.</p><p>The proposed civil litigation longstop will not preclude Service personnel or civilians deployed on overseas operations from bringing claims in relation to PTSD or other conditions that manifest or are diagnosed beyond that limit, as Section 11 of the Limitation Act calculates time limits from the later of (a) the date on which the cause of action accrued or (b) the date of knowledge.</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>

At present, full-time Regular personnel are paid X-Factor at 14½% and PTVR personnel get 5% X-Factor.
