Statement re Mr Wayne Bass and Ministry of Defence

We will consider this judgment in detail before deciding on the best way forward for our client.

Mr Bass, who was discharged from the army in 2014, remains in poor health as a result of the Q fever he contracted in Afghanistan.

While considering Mr Bass’ options – including a potential appeal against this judgment – we will continue to support him in every way we can. We would urge the Ministry of Defence to do the same. His best interests must come first.
