I am currently mobilised on Op Herrick 7. I wish to raise my concerns regarding JPA pay issues. I read in the October 2007 Soldier Magazine that JPA pay problems have been described as "isolated" cases. I am concerned this is not the case. Having consulted many soldiers, I have learnt that many are experiencing pay problems with JPA. For example, my unit have not received a penny in LSA since mobilising in May 2007. Over four months later, the position is the same with no light at the end of the tunnel. It is my understanding LSA problems are theatre specific and over 1000 soldiers are not receiving LSA in Afghanistan. Describing this large quantity as "isolated cases" is stretching the definition a little bit in my view. The longer this goes on the more damaging it is on the soldiers' morale. Please can this be rectified as soon as possible so that the junior soldiers in particular, who acutely rely on LSA to support families, are paid the money they deserve.
