Clause 116 — Referral of case following investigation by service or civilian police
Orders of the Day
Kevan Jones (North Durham, Labour)
Is not this a great example of the innuendoes, half-truths and hearsay that the hon. Gentleman and Lord Boyce are peddling? This is having an effect on our armed forces that is, frankly, not very helpful. May I refer the hon. Gentleman back to Lord Boyce's response to my question? He said:
"I do not have any which I can give the Committee, Chairman."
In other words, he did not have any factual evidence that legal encirclement had actually stopped armed forces taking part in any activities. I say to the hon. Gentleman: stop peddling this, because it is damaging our armed forces.
