Armed Forces: Pay

Volume 460: debated on Wednesday 9 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many Army personnel were mispaid on the first pay run by the Army Joint Personnel Administration; and if he will make a statement. (136155)

The April payroll has been completed successfully on time and the vast majority of 110,104 Army regulars and 17,059 TA personnel have received their basic pay accurately. 8,238 personnel have been affected by minor discrepancies in relation to deduction charges and allowances, of which some 4,000 stem from a single error resulting in an overpayment of £1.43 per person. 90 per cent. of these will be corrected in the May pay run with the remainder being corrected in June.
