To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer of 20 June 2012, on the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme, what (a) letters, (b) emails and (c) other correspondence the Minister of State for the Armed Forces received directly on the subject from (i) former members of the armed forces and (ii) other members of the public since May 2010.
I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on
The Ministry of Defence holds no records of letters, e-mails or other correspondence received directly by Ministers from former members of the armed forces or other members of the public, on the subject of the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme, since May 2010.
I am, however, in regular contact with Sir Neil Thorne, chairman of the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme, in relation to the management of the scheme itself.
