FOI Request 20/187




FOI Request 20/187


A list of hardship postings and the allowances paid in each case. I'm also seeking a total cost for how much was paid in 'hardship' payments in 2019 and 2020, an anonymised list of beneficiaries and how much each were paid, and the location in which they are based.

Copies of any reviews, submissions, memoranda and so on relating to the possible reform of the 'hardship' posting system in the period 1 Jan 2019 to date of receipt of the request.
