PM Contenders Sign Veterans Pledge

It's worth taking note of this commitment made by Prime Minister contenders Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson. Both have now signed the Sun's Veterans Pledge. The campaign which has been running since 7 July  demanded  'the next Prime Minister ends a host of ongoing injustices against military veterans'.   Boris Johnson's signature under three key demands for our heroes  

The signing of the three-point Veterans Pledge commits them to:

  • Ending the scourge of vexatious historical investigations of Northern Ireland vets with legislation by the next election;
  • Forming an independent veterans department to coordinate help across Whitehall;
  • Fulfilling a promise to enshrine the Armed Forces Covenant, ensuring veterans and families never face disadvantages because of their service.
Boris Johnson has  also promised to appoint a Veterans Minister to his Cabinet.  We’ll be tracking this as it develops over the coming weeks, but meanwhile you can read the full story here     Images: The Sun Newspaper   Jeremy Hunt - Chris McAndrew   Boris Johnson - Yukiya Amano
