Departmental Reviews

Volume 473: debated on Wednesday 12 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will place in the Library copies of his Department’s (a) Pension Abatement Review and (b) X Factor Review for financial years 1997-98 to 2007-08. (185714)

The 2007-08 X-Factor Review provided evidence to both the Armed Forces’ Pay Review Body (AFPRB) and the Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB). Although the AFPRB recommendations have already been announced, the SSRB has yet to submit its recommendation for the senior military. Once the Government have responded to the SSRB’s recommendations, I will place a redacted version of the review in the Library.

The Pension Abatement Review is carried out independently of MOD by the Armed Forces’ Pay Review Body. The AFPRB report for each pension abatement review can be found on:
