    That this House recognises the considerable sacrifices made by the spouses and children of armed forces and other service personnel for this country; notes with concern that many non-British members of service families are being denied citizenship or leave to remain in this country; further notes that these service personnel and their families regard themselves as British, have built a life in Britain and in many cases have children who are British citizens; reminds the Government of its `duty of care' towards service families under the military covenant; and urges the Government to reconsider its position towards service families wishing to remain in the country for which they have sacrificed so much.
