Veterans' Pledge Petition

This petition, in support of The Sun's Veterans' Pledge, urges the Government to legislate to: 

1) create an Office of Veterans Affairs within the Cabinet Office, with a Cabinet-level Minister, to ensure world-class care and support for former Armed Forces personnel;

2) enshrine the Military Covenant into law, so that no veteran or their family should ever face any disadvantage because of their service for this country; and

3) end vexatious investigations into historical allegations against our troops - including in Northern Ireland - to be passed before the next General Election.

If you, like me, support the Veterans’ Pledge, please sign my petition. I will present this petition to Parliament in September and the more signatures there are, the greater the likelihood that the new Prime Minister will take notice and put the Veterans’ Pledge into law.

Every name counts so please sign now and share with your friends and family!

To the House of Commons,

The petition of residents of the United Kingdom

Declares that the Veterans’ Pledge being sponsored by the Sun newspaper is a worthy endeavour deserving fullest government support; further that it is vital that an Office of Veterans Affairs be established within the Cabinet Office; further that Cabinet-level Minister is appointed to this Office to ensure world-class care and support for former Armed Forces personnel; further that the Military Covenant should be enshrined in law, so that no veteran or their family should ever face any disadvantage because of their service for this country; further that there should be an end to vexatious investigations into historical allegations against our troops, including those in Northern Ireland. 

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to implement the necessary changes, legislative and structural, to deliver on the Veterans’ Pledge.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
