Mr Smith

Thank you for your email below in which you request the number of negligence claims against the Household Cavalry within the last five years. The Ministry of Defence requires further information in order to determine whether it holds any information within the scope of your request. Given the nature of your further request of injuries caused through riding horses without saddles in the HCMR, please confirm if your interest is limited to the number of negligence claims concerning horse-related activities. Please also clarify whether your request is for public liability claims, that is claims made by a member of the public that have been identified as being attributable to HCR/HCMR or whether it extends to Employer’s Liability Personal Injury claims, that is claims made by members of the Armed Forces who were serving in the HCR or HCMR unit at the time of the claim.

Once you have clarified your request, I will consider it again.

Yours sincerely,
DJEP-CLCP
