HC Deb 02 February 1987 vol 109 c516W
Mr. McNamara

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many service men and service women are receiving ex gratia payments for injuries incurred during their service.

Mr. Freeman

None are currently receiving ex-gratia payments. Those discharged as a result of injuries received during service receive lump sums and/or pensions under the armed forces pension scheme and, where appropriate, the DHSS war pension scheme, depending upon the circumstances of their injury.
