Financial Assistance for Reservists and their Employers


Book Reviewer
Just saw this mentioned in Hansard - it 's well worth downloading and reading, and I will certainly be responding.

Overall, it seems quite sensible, and if it comes into force will make Mobilisation a less traumatic experince for many.

For the first phase, i.e. getting commments before drafting this report, just over 200 people commented, so every one counts!
Send comments on the proposal (which seems quite tasty, thanks) to:

At a first reading it looks very good. If I read it correctly they have included a provision for claiming extra costs incurred as a result of mobilisation and removed the means test which included your partners finances.

I mention these as they mean that I might now be able to stay in once my current term expires. But I suspect that this wan't done just for me.

The only bit I objected to was the fact that they claimed units had been informed that the consultation was underway. Absolute nonsense. I was in the room when the Bn employee liaison chap was told about it by one of the lads. Not the sign of a well publicised thing I feel.
