This is an extract from Tribunals' 2017 Annual Report.

The impact of the Upper Tribunal case (JM v Secretary of State for Defence [2015] UKUT 332 AAC) which dealt with a claim for arising out of alleged bullying and harassment in the Armed Forces continues to have ramifications as we work through the cases that were stayed pending the appeal to the Upper Tribunal.
The decision of the First-tier Tribunal hearing the appeals of those from the Services claiming compensation for the alleged effects of ionising radiation from the Christmas Island atomic tests is anticipated shortly. It is one of the longest and largest cases ever heard in WPAFCC having been remitted from the Upper Tribunal (Abdale and others v Secretary of State for Defence (War Pensions) [2014] UKUT 0477 AAC) The panel are having to consider, not just extraordinarily large volumes of documentary evidence, but some contentious and difficult medical and scientific concepts.

A long-winded way of saying "If you were expecting a result any time soon forget it"
