Armed Forces: Injuries

Volume 498: debated on Thursday 29 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many former service personnel who left the armed forces as a result of injury since 1997 were from (a) England, (b) Teesside and (c) Middlesbrough, South and East Cleveland constituency. (296393)

This information is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost as residential address information for former service personnel is not held with reference to country, county or parliamentary constituency. Further, there are significant questions over the accuracy and completeness of what is held; for example, some ex-service personnel do not provide a valid contact address on leaving the services or do not notify the MOD of a change of address if they move.
