star this property answer text <p>No comparative assessment of the kind suggested has been made. The aim of uprating is to protect War Pension and Armed Forces Compensation Scheme payments against rising prices. In line with other public sector schemes, payments through the Armed Forces pensions and compensation schemes have increased with reference to the Consumer Price Index.</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.
