The Ministry of Justice does not collect or hold any data on the occupation or previous occupations of defendants at any stage of possession proceedings up to and including eviction, nor whether parties to possession proceedings have served in the armed forces.

Official published statistics on possession volumes can be found here - https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/mortgage-and-landlord-possession-statistics.

The Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities holds CORE Social Housing Lettings data on households in new social housing lettings in England. This includes how many veterans moved from their previous settled home into a new social housing letting due to being evicted on a (a) fault and (b) no fault basis. This data was provided in our previous response to PQs 68036 & PQ68037. The Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities does not hold data on the reasons for leaving last settled home for veterans entering any other type of accommodation, outside of social housing.
