Territorial Army: Pay

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 10 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much back pay was owing to Territorial Army soldiers who have undertaken active service in (a) Iraq and (b) Afghanistan at the latest date for which figures are available; what steps are being taken to clear the backlog; and if he will make a statement. (241277)

The information requested is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

However, there are no known systematic problems with any back pay owed to TA soldiers who have undertaken active service in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Where isolated errors are notified by individuals, SPVA take immediate action to rectify the situation.
