A time to remember

poppyMillions of people will come together across the country today to remember all those who have sacrificed so much that we might live our lives in freedom.

It is a time to remember and also to thank our Armed Forces who continue to serve with such bravery and distinction.

Labour is proud of our Armed Forces and veterans and their families. We will always honour them through the Armed Forces Covenant. The covenant is our nation’s pledge to our servicemen and women that they will be treated with dignity and respect.

I am particularly concerned that our veterans and reservists can access the very best mental health support they need and deserve.

The dedication they have displayed in past conflicts and continue to show today deserves nothing less.
