The monetary value of ex gratia payments formally signed off in 2010-11 was some £19 million and in 2011-12 some £135,000.

The figures for 2010-11 reflect the closure of two significant cases in that year.

Expenditure on special payments (that is, ex gratia payments, compensation payments and extra-statutory and extra-regulatory payments), is disclosed in the MOD's Annual Report and Accounts each year.
