Supporting our armed forces

[03/07/2013 | No comment]

Saturday 29th June was Armed Forces Day, a vital opportunity to celebrate and honour the commitment and courage of our exceptional soldiers, sailors and aircrews.

I’m a strong supporter of the Armed Forces Covenant – a pledge made by the Government to ensure our armed forces are not disadvantaged as a result of their service.Liz running

I’m also backing Labour’s Fighting Fitter campaign, which encourages gyms to offer discounts to service personnel, and the Veterans Interview Programme, where companies provide guaranteed interviews and extra employment support to veterans.
