Modernising Personnel Administration

Volume 449: debated on Monday 24 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the written statement of 17 July 2006, Official Report, column 3WS, on modernising armed forces and veterans personnel administration, what budget has been set aside to carry out the proposed changes. (87093)

The bringing together of the Armed Forces Personnel Administration Agency and the Veterans Agency will incur modest costs, primarily in senior management time and in any re-badging of the new agency. These costs will be met by existing budgets within the individual agencies and are not significant enough to require a separate budget to be set aside. Any subsequent proposals for investment to improve service quality would be assessed case by case.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the written statement of 17 July 2006, Official Report, column 3WS, on modernising armed forces and veterans personnel administration, if he will place in the Library a copy of the (a) study and (b) consultation document. (87094)
