Veterans Badge

Volume 456: debated on Thursday 1 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what information is available on a constituency basis to identify those people who are entitled to a Veterans Badge but who have yet to claim it; and if he will make a statement. (111151)

[holding answer 30 January 2007]: The Ministry of Defence has insufficient information to make an accurate assessment of the number of people entitled to HM Armed Forces Veterans Lapel Badge but estimate that the total number is around 5 million. This figure cannot be broken down by constituency.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many Veterans Badges were issued in each parliamentary constituency in each of the last two years; and if he will make a statement. (111152)

[holding answer 30 January 2007]: The information is not held in a format that identifies how many Veterans Badges have been issued in each parliamentary constituency in each of the last two years and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
