Legal Aid for HM Forces - Petition for number 10 - SIGN IT!

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by TopBadger, Mar 6, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Subject: Legal Aid for HM Forces

    Families of HM Forces are denied automatic legal aid for inquests into their deaths. Soldiers and air force personnel are being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan yet their families have to pay thousands of pounds for their inquest.

    This is because the Government will not award the families Legal Aid. This petition to No10 is to try and get them to change their minds, they need as many signatures as possible to highlight the cause for change and help the bereaved families.

    This petition is open until August 19 so tell everybody you know that that it needs more names!

    (apologies if this has been posted elsewhere, search tool didn't return much for "legal aid" though, so not my bad)
