"We want Britain to be the best place in the world to be an Armed Forces veteran. Those who’ve served the country, to keep us safe, deserve no less. So we want to hear from you about what more can be done"
Labour's Shadow Veteran's Team
John Healey MP, Stephanie Peacock MP
Labour is standing up for veterans in Parliament by:
Campaigning to put the Armed Forces Covenant fully in law;
Promoting a new duty of care by the MoD to give veterans better legal and mental health support;
Campaigning for Commonwealth veterans to have visa fees scrapped;
Opposing 10,000 cuts to Armed Forces numbers introduced by the Tories;
Proposing better rights to compensation when injured overseas;
Legislating for a three year national insurance holiday for companies employing veterans – two more years than what the Tories offer;
Campaigning to reduce the waiting time for social housing and to improve the quality of Armed Forces housing stock.
