It only took 58 members from the arrse site to crash through the 1000 [align=justify]barrier on the Downing Street petition to help get a fair deal for service personnel on the housing front. We also have an Early Day Motion in Parliament. To date only 138 MPs have signed it and we are hoping that more will to show backing for the forces especially so with two wars going on. We need your further help with this venture so read below and ACTION IT!
The current legislation discriminates against service personnel and puts them at a distinct disadvantage when requiring help with housing. An early day motion is currently being signed by MPs which if carried, will help change this legislation, but we need more of them to sign it if we are to get the government to take notice. We now need your support to get this through. Go to www.parliament.uk/dire...s/alcm.cfm to find your MP and then Email your MP asking for support for this EDM. Come on ARRSERS, get of your arrse and give us some support!. You can also go to the Downing Street petition to further show your support.
If you wish, you could always take this simple letter and copy and paste it to your MP via the link. Don't forget to place their name and yours in the pasted letter.
The following EDM 288 has been tabled in the House of Commons. I believe our armed forces should be given all the support they require for their civilian transition, and housing is a fundamental requirement. I hope you will show your support by signing EDM 288.
