HC Deb 19 April 2004 vol 420 c341W
Mr. Drew

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what discussions he is having with the Royal British Legion on the subject of the proposed Armed Forces Compensation Scheme for war pensioners. [166459]

Mr. Caplin

Ministers and officials have maintained a regular dialogue with the Royal British Legion during the development of the new Armed Forces Compensation Scheme. As detailed scheme rules are developed, this dialogue will continue. The MOD recognises the value of the experience and expertise offered by ex-Service organisations such as the Royal British Legion.
