Any lawyers or legal experts on here? If so how do you intrepret the above section posted here; (3)In preparing an armed forces covenant report the Secretary of State must have regard in particular to . (a)the unique obligations of, and sacrifices made by, the armed forces; . (b)the principle that it is desirable to remove disadvantages arising for service people from membership, or former membership, of the armed forces; and . (c)the principle that special provision for service people may be justified by the effects on such people of membership, or former membership, of the armed forces. Speifically 3b - desireable to remove disadvantages arising for service people from former membership of the armed forces. I am specifically thinking in relation to the current welfare reforms, so say hypothetically a veteran medically discharged several years ago for an injury attributable to service, lets say back injury, claimed benefits in civvy street and has now failed the ATOS medical and is fit for work, despite being a medical discharge and in receipt of a pension. Do you think the above section is applicable to that subsequent appeals process or is out of context? I am thinking the veteran is suffering a disadvantage from their service and is therefore relevant.
