asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many ex-gratia payments were made in 1984 to members, ex-members, or dependants of former members of Her Majesty's forces; and what were the reasons for such payments.

Ex-gratia payments are made to members and ex-members of the armed forces and their dependants for a wide variety of reasons and no central record is maintained of the number of such payments and the reasons for them. However, no ex-gratia payments were made in 1984 in cases arising out of the operations of section 10 of the Crown Proceedings Act 1947.
