Dear Ministry of Defence,
I understand that Mr J Mercer wants to make this country the best place in the world for veterans. To this end, can I ask how Mr Mercer proposes to gauge success in this area? More specifically can I ask the following under FOI:
Can you please share reports or data that Mr Mercer's office has on the following (specifically data - broken down by year if possible) in the last decade:
- the number of veterans who are homeless
- the number of veterans who have committed suicide
- the number of veterans living with life-changing combat injuries
Dear Iain Overton
Thank you for contacting the Ministry of Defence.
