To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, whether the indemnity provided by his Department to private land owners who make their land available for military training activities provides full cover to ensure the land area has no liability for claims arising from such training.
22 March 2017
Where appropriate and when requested, indemnity is provided by the Ministry of Defence to all private land owners who make their land available for military training activities.
This covers the land owner to the full extent of the Department's liabilities against all claims, actions, proceedings, demands, costs or expenses which may be incurred by or made against the landowner or any other third party.
This Indemnity will not cover circumstances where there has been any act of negligence by the landowner.
