Dear Ministry of Defence,

On November 5th 2014 it was announced that that Mr Justice Charles, President Crown Office Chambers ,had found that The First Tier Ionizing Radiation Tribunal conducted by the late Judge Hugh Stubbs in February 2013, had "misapplied the law".
The Secretary of State was represented by Adam Heppinstall and Hannah Curtin led by Leigh-Ann Mulcahy QC, all from Henderson Chambers.

Please advise the total legal cost to the MOD of this flawed First Tier Tribunal judgment.

Yours faithfully,
Margaret

Dear Pers Trg-Sec-FOI Mailbox (MULTIUSER),
Thank you for your reply with the information that £8982,10.14 represents the legal cost paid for the failed attempt to deny certain War Pensioners their entitlement. I understand this sum does not contain VAT charges which will be extra.
In your reply you state inter-alia-
"The total legal costs for the proceedings in the Ionising Radiation appeals before the First-tier
Tribunal to date are as follows: "
If this represents the" total legal costs" why is necessary to add "to date"?

Yours sincerely,

margaret
