How many were part time/ TA

Dear Mr McDonald,

I refer to your email below.

The claims in question relate to common law claims for compensation. The MOD considers such claims for compensation on the basis of legal liability. Where there is a legal liability, compensation is paid. SPVA, have no role in the consideration of these claims.

As stated in my letter of 2 Oct, claims received are not recorded in a manner that would enable us to distinguish between claims brought by regular members of the RIR from those who were part-timers.

Yours sincerely,

Common Law Claims and Policy Branch
