The State Claims Agency (SCA) has delegated authority to manage personal injury claims taken against the Minister for Defence. My Department does not hold the information sought by the Deputy.

The SCA has provided the following information which was extracted from the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

They have advised that they received notification of 80 claims relating to the Air Corps between 01/01/2007 and 31/10/2021.

I am informed that 26 of these claims are currently open and under active management. 54 of these claims have been finalised to date, of which 35 were settled.
