MoD invites feedback on injury compensation rules

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) is seeking the views of members of the public and service personnel over how they think its injury compensation scheme should work.

It is part of a wide-ranging review into how injury compensation should be granted to members of the armed forces who are hurt in the line of duty.

A group of representatives from the armed forces, their families and related organisations will be chaired by former chief of the defence staff Admiral The Lord Boyce as part of the review.

"While improvements have been made, I am determined to continue to do all I can to ensure that our brave Service personnel have full confidence in the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme," commented defence secretary Bob Ainsworth.

The MoD’s injury compensation offer to families of the 14 victims of the Nimrod explosion in 2006 was recently slammed as "insulting" by lawyers.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19436071-ADNFCR
