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!

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.
