Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by GrumpyGit, Oct 12, 2009.

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. The Legion has launched its own manifesto for the next general election. Championing the cause of the whole Armed Forces family, it sets out what they want the next Government to do and tells MPs and prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) how they can do their bit to ensure the Legions manifesto calls are taken on board.

    They have a whole host of calls in their manifesto and the full list and further details can be viewed on their website. The following are an example:

    For Service Personnel and their families
    •Improve and keep the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme under continual review
    •Stop breaches of harmony guidelines (deployment rates) in order to reduce family separation and breakdown

    For bereaved Armed Forces families
    •Provide bereaved Armed Forces families with independent legal advice during inquests
    •Introduce an Independent Advisory Committee on Military Deaths

    For veterans and their families
    •Make NHS priority treatment work for veterans with injuries caused by Service in the Armed Forces
    •Tackle poverty among older veterans and widows
