Mates, Michael Scott, Lee Williams, Mark
Winterton, Ann

That this House welcomes the Royal British Legion's campaign calling on the nation and Parliament to honour the military covenant; recognises the important role that the organisation plays in the provision of welfare support for serving men and women, veterans and their families; and urges all hon. and right hon. Members to pledge their support to the campaign to improve conditions in the areas of healthcare, compensation and support for bereaved families.



Russell, Bob 4 signatures

George, Andrew Harris, Evan Williams, Mark

That this House pays tribute to residents from the British Overseas Territory of St Helena and others who volunteered to support the United Kingdom in recovering the Falklands following the invasion by Argentina in 1982; recognises with deep gratitude that the RMS St Helena, the only vessel which provides a lifeline for the remote island of St Helena in the South Atlantic, was deployed to assist the UK armed forces; regrets that, purely because of operational considerations, the RMS St Helena was placed outside the exclusion zone during part of the conflict, and a decision was taken not to honour those serving on board with the South Atlantic Medal presented to others who were engaged in the Falklands War; and calls upon the Government to make amends for this slight against those who served on the RMS St Helena, and who risked their lives, by amending the criteria so that they can be awarded the South Atlantic Medal following commemorations of the 25th anniversary of the Falklands War.

Challen, Colin 1 signatures

That this House believes that all ex-servicemen and women should be treated equally in the payment of pensions, regardless of when they served in Her Majesty's armed forces.

EDM 107


Stuart, Graham 1 signatures

That this House strongly supports the aims of the Royal British Legion's Military Covenant campaign; recognises the extraordinary commitment and bravery of our armed forces and their families; notes that the Military Covenant states that service personnel will be `called upon to make personal sacrifices, including the ultimate sacrifice, in the service of the nation' and that, in return, they will be able to expect ` fair treatment, to be valued and respected as individuals, and that they (and their families) will be sustained and rewarded by commensurate terms and conditions of service'; questions whether this solemn promise has been upheld by the Government; and calls on Ministers to support the physical and emotional wellbeing of service people and their families and to ensure that bereaved service families are appropriately supported, financially and otherwise, following the loss of loved ones in the line of duty.
