Letter of correction from Peter Luff:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Slough (Fiona Mactaggart) on 1 March 2012.

The full answer given was as follows: (97018)

The Ministry of Defence does not have any contracts with A4e.

The correct answer should have been:

The Ministry of Defence has one contract with A4e. This is for the provision of a trial of early leaver services, to assist service personnel leaving the armed forces with their transition back into civilian life. The contract is for a period of 12 months, commencing February 2012, and has a nil value contract management fee.
