To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many people living in (a) Camberwell and Peckham constituency and (b) the London Borough of Southwark have been in receipt of guaranteed income payment in each of the last five years.
13 November 2017
Guaranteed Income Payments are payable under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme which came into force on 6 April 2005. They provide a regular income stream, payable for life, to former Service personnel who suffer an injury or illness attributable to their Service which is likely to cause a significant loss of earning capacity.
As at 31 March 2013, 2014 and 2015 there were no veterans living in the Camberwell and Peckham constituency who were in receipt of Guaranteed Income Payments. As at 31 March 2016 and 2017, there were fewer than three veterans receiving such payments.
As at 31 March 2013 and 2014, there were no veterans living in the London Borough of Southwark who were in receipt of Guaranteed Income Payments. As at 31 March 2015, 2016 and 2017, fewer than three veterans were in receipt of such payments.
Note: In line with Ministry of Defence Statistical Disclosure Guidelines, numbers fewer than three have been supressed to reduce the possible inadvertent disclosure of individual identities.
