Mr. Gerald Howarth: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the winter supplementary estimates 200506 (HC 672), for what reasons the total additional net resource requirement is lower than the additional net cash requirement. 
John Reid: The additional cash requirement includes capital and resource expenditure. In accordance with HM Treasury consolidated budgeting guidance for 200506 the total additional net resource requirement excludes capital expenditure, and therefore a lower figure is shown than in the additional cash requirement.
Ben Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what discussions he held with representatives of Far East prisoners of war before his decision to offer compensation for distress caused by his Department's failure to set out the eligibility criteria clearly to non-qualifying claimants for the ex-gratia payment scheme for Far East prisoners of war. 
Mr. Touhig: I met my hon. Friend, the Member for Hendon (Mr. Dismore), who is chairman of the Far East Prisoner of War All Party Parliamentary Group on 13 September, and took the opportunity to discuss the Department's intentions with respect to the level of compensation and the likely reaction of those affected. I also took advice from officials who had previous contact with some of those affected and their representatives, and who therefore had an appreciation of the distress that our maladministration has caused.
Ben Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what criteria were used in arriving at the figure of £500 compensation awarded to non-qualifying claimants for the ex-gratia payment scheme for Far East prisoners of war for distress caused by his Department's failure to set out the eligibility criteria clearly. 
Mr. Touhig: The payment is for any distress which may have resulted from the loss of expectation of a payment under the scheme. The amount reflects the extent of that expectation and the length of time that those involved have had to wait for a resolution. The award is at the upper end of the scale of what the Ministry of Defence would pay in cases where there has been similar maladministration of our pension and War Pension schemes.
