What I am getting at is whether there is statutory underpinning of the financial support that the Government, through the Ministry of Defence, give to organisations such as Combat Stress, or is such action discretionary? Will the new arrangements proposed by the Government under the new scheme require any further authority to ensure that the funding support given by the MOD to those worthwhile organisations can continue?
