Government in payments
  The Government today launched a legal challenge today in an effort to slash the compensation awards to two wounded soldiers and limit future payments to combat victims. Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth Vitiligo nike dunks prada shoes retro Jordan timberland boots is seeking a ruling in the Court of Appeal over payments to Light Dragoon Anthony Duncanwow power leveling power leveling dunk sb oakley sunglasses wow power leveling, who was shot while on patrol in Iraq, and Royal Marine Matthew McWilliams, who fractured his thigh in a military exercise.
  Light Dragoon Anthony Duncan, who now walks with crutches, was originally awarded £9,250, which was increased to £46,000 by an appeal tribunal. Royal Marine Matthew McWilliams was ugg shoes jordans shoes air Jordan air max cheap Jordan awarded £8,250 but had the sum increased to £28,750 on appealavi to mp4 converter aluminum windows cheapest wow gold world of warcraft gold buy wow gold. Both had their payments increased after complications arising from their injuries. The MoD is arguing that they should only be compensated for their "original injuries".
  Natalie Lieven QC, representing the Defence Secretary, told the panel of three judges that awards for injuries are made under the Armed Forces and Reserve Forces Compensation Order. She said the Uppercheap wow gold world cheap shoes gucci shoes cigarette lighter Nfl jerseys nike dunks of warcraft gold wow account wow accounts wow power leveling Tribunal Administrative Appeal Chamber had made wrong conclusions about the Order and the Defence Secretary was now seeking guidance from the court. The tribunal had set out a number of principles on how the Order should be interpreted.
  “The impact of that decision covers the large majority of cases under the Order and is therefore of very great importance to the Secretary of State and to the proper decision-making nike shox prada shoes retro Jordan timberland boots wholesale shoes in many future cases.” She said: “The tribunal’s approach was contrary to one of the fundamental tenets of the schememp4 video converter wow power leveling 3gp converter 3gp video converter psp video convert, namely that it focused on injury and not on disablement.”
  It was not the same as social security schemes and personal injury claims where the focus is on the level of disablement suffered by the claimant at the date of decision and is projected into the future, she quilting & embroidery machine evaporative cooling ball valve solar heaters stainless steel pipe said. Ms Lieven said the Order does not allow benefits to be paid for injuries predominantly caused or made worse by tobaccowow power leveling wow powerleveling wow power leveling wow power leveling buy wow gold, drugs and alcohol use, medical treatment except while on military operations outside the UK where facilities are limited, or for events occurring before the soldier entered the Armed Forces
  She said the scheme provided compensation on a tariff basis which depended on the nature and severity of the injury. The aim was to create “fair and consistent awards”, she said. “If new balance shoes Air force one ed hardy cheap shoes wholesale shoes one were simply to consider the claimant’s condition at the time of the claim or decisionbuy wow accounts dvd ripper CONNECTOR posters printing scratch card, without regard to the initiating injury, then it would mean that a claimant whose fracture (for example) had by then healed would receive no compensation.”
  She said that Cpl Duncan was cleared in January this year as being fully employable anywhere in the world and he has been serving in Afghanistan this year. She added: “The current scheme normally awards compensation ugg boots cheap Jordan ugg boot jordans shoes ATO SHOES which is final and aims to cover the average expected effects ofdiscount golf clubs golf equipment golf clubs dvd to ipod convert flv the injury over a lifetime, rather than a claimant’s overall condition at some later date.”
  The appeal tribunal had erred in law in considering the condition at date of decision on the claim, rather than considering the injury at the date it occurred, she said. Lawyers representing the two soldiers will be arguing during the two-day hearing that the scheme was designed to compensate members of the Armed Forces injured in military operations.

The high profile case comes as military leaders admitted that Britain may need to send more troops to Afghanistan despite the success of Operation Panther’s Claw.
  Brigadier Tim Radford, commander of Task Force Helmand, said that the existing troops could not be expected to mount further significant operations without reinforcements.

Although 3,000 troops managed to drive out about 500 Taleban during the five-week offensive, they will be fully deployed holding an area in Helmand province about the size of the Isle of Wight, their commanding officer admitted.
  The MoD announced yesterday that two more soldiers had been killed in Afghanistan. Brigadier Radford said that although 23 soldiers had died since the operation began on June 19, 10 were a direct result of the offensive in central Helmand.
