Section 4 of the Ministerial and other Pensions and Salaries Act 1991 sets out Ministers' entitlement to severance payments. Any such payments are published in each department's audited annual accounts, and these accounts can be found in the Ministry of Defence Annual Report and Account Index where the severance pay for the right hon. Member for South Staffordshire will be published in 2020....
I responded to the hon. Member on 30 July 2019.
I have today placed in the Library of the House a copy of a report into the condition of the Reserves and delivery of the Future Reserves 2020 programme compiled by the Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Associations External Scrutiny Team. I am most grateful to the Team for their work. The report raises interesting points which, after a thorough examination, I will respond to later in the year.
