Scottish Parliament: Veterans Accommodation (11 Dec 2019)

Maurice Corry: I am sure that the minister will agree with me that housing support pathways for veterans, as a major part of their transition, need to be as accessible as possible, and that a variety of housing options need to be available to families upon leaving the forces. Will the minister detail what actions have been taken to encourage discussions on housing options with armed forces personnel, with...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Veterans: Homelessness ( 4 Dec 2020)

Johnny Mercer: As we enter the winter months, it is more important than ever to ensure that no veteran or member of the Armed Forces community should be without a home to call their own. I would like to thank all those across the public sector and charities for their tireless efforts to support these efforts. More generally, for 2020/21 the Government has put in place over £600 million of funding to tackle...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces Covenant (15 Sep 2014)

Anna Soubry: Since the Armed Forces Covenant Annual Report 2012, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has systematically been reviewing the public transport arrangements in place for all locations where there is Defence housing. Where the location of Service family accommodation does not have reasonable access to essential amenities, including public transport, this is reflected in reduced charges for...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces Covenant (10 Jul 2017)

Tobias Ellwood: The Policy on the right to buy socially-held accommodation is a matter for the relevant housing authorities and is not covered under the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant. The Covenant's primary role is to remove the disadvantages that our Serving personnel, veterans and families may face as a result of their Service and to offer them a fair deal in comparison with all other British...

Army (Restructuring) (23 Jul 1991)

John Home Robertson: ...to regret tampering with the highly successful Scottish regiments to which the hon. Member for Dumfries (Sir H. Monro) referred. May I invite the right hon. Gentleman to say a little more about housing? Home ownership is not the whole story, and the fact of tens of thousands of people leaving the armed forces as a consequence of the changes will present serious housing difficulties in the...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Local Government and Public Services: Support for the Armed Forces (29 Nov 2017)

Rhianon Passmore: Cabinet Secretary, will you agree with me that there was no greater champion from this Senedd for our armed forces than Carl Sargeant? As Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children, Carl last year outlined in the Chamber Welsh Government action to support our armed forces and veterans, such as the innovative housing referral pathway to ensure that former members of the armed forces...

8. Debate: Support for the Armed Forces Community ( 8 Nov 2022)

Mark Isherwood: ...services in Wales during the pandemic.  As we heard, 2022 is the fortieth anniversary of the Falklands conflict, the first military action since the second world war that used all elements of the armed forces, with 255 British personnel losing their lives. As we heard, the Welsh Guards lost more than any other unit—33 soldiers and many casualties, mostly onboard the RFA Sir Galahad when...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Armed Forces: Post-service Welfare (26 Feb 2013)

Lord Astor of Hever: ...Army will issue every person selected for redundancy in tranche 3 with a DVD that will explain what services the CTP offers and what support the soldier can expect.

Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 1 - Duty of care to service personnel (13 Jul 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I start by paying tribute to members of the armed forces both for the work they do in ordinary times and for the work they have done over the last 15 or 16 months with their support for services during the pandemic. I also want to pay tribute to the organisations that have taken time to engage with Members during the passage of this Bill to ensure that we are fully informed about as many...

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Military Covenant (16 Feb 2011)

Liam Fox: We are for the first time recognising the covenant in law. We are setting it out in law in the Armed Forces Bill that the Secretary of State for Defence will be required to come to the House of Commons, and when we have published the tri-forces covenant, the House of Commons will be able to decide whether the Government have lived up to their part of the bargain. I find it extraordinary that...

Armed Forces Day (26 Jun 2019)

Wayne David: That suggestion is worthy of serious consideration. It should not be dismissed, because there is a strong case for a collective voice for personnel in the armed forces so that Government can be helped by knowing exactly what they want and can respond accordingly. That is something to be carefully considered in future. It is very important to send a clear message that, while there has been a...

Defence: Veterans Overseas (15 Mar 2021)

Johnny Mercer: There is not a carve-out in the budget for veterans who live overseas, but we are committed to ensuring that the armed forces covenant works equally for them as it does in this country. We are introducing the Armed Forces Bill in the coming months to legislate for the first time to ensure that discharge of duties cannot result in disadvantage from local authorities in health, housing and...

Homelessness: Veterans - Question (31 Jan 2024)

Baroness Taylor of Stevenage: My Lords, we surely all agree, across your Lordships’ House, that the very least we owe those who have served this country in our Armed Forces is that at the end of their service they should have either affordable supported housing with wraparound support or a General Needs home. Sadly, because of the national housing crisis, that is no longer the case. Last year, in spite of the pledges...

Armed Forces: Housing — Question (14 Dec 2011)

Lord Palmer of Childs Hill: During the passage of the Armed Forces Bill, I raised the dire state of forces housing. I suggested that we look to fill the gap by the greater use of housing associations in garrison towns. I did not really get an answer, but the Minister did at that time say that the upgrades since May 2010 of service housing personnel was 900 units. Can the Minister-bearing in mind his previous response...

Armed Forces Bill: Third Reading (10 Oct 2011)

Lord Rosser: My Lords, the amendment would provide that the annual Armed Forces covenant would cover the operation of inquests as well as the subjects of healthcare, housing and education. I do not wish to repeat the arguments already advanced in support of the amendment about why it is essential that there should be a specific reference in the Bill to the report covering the operation of inquests....

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Home Ownership ( 4 Nov 2013)

Anna Soubry: ...announced that £200 million has been allocated for the creation of the forces Help to Buy scheme. Launching on 1 April 2014, it will significantly improve the support available to members of the armed Forces who wish to buy their own home. Forces Help to Buy will offer the men and women of our armed forces a deposit loan of 50% of their annual salary, up to a maximum of £25,000. The...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces: Pay ( 2 Jun 2020)

Johnny Mercer: The Government is currently considering the Armed Forces’ Pay Review Body’s (AFPRB) recommendations, taking into account the need to recruit, retain, and motivate personnel, as well as the long-term affordability of the Armed Forces. Once a decision has been reached, any pay rises will be backdated to 1 April 2020. The maintenance of morale in the Armed Forces is a high priority and is...

Bill Presented: Armed Forces Personnel (10 Jan 2008)

Kevan Jones: ...matters, but that is why we need a debate about what the MOD should provide, and what charities should. Service charities have an important role to play, and they can provide some services for our armed forces far better than the Government can. We cannot ignore the legacy of the previous Conservative Government or the way that they sold off Army houses but, as my hon. Friend the Member...

Armed Forces Bill: Second Reading ( 6 Jul 2011)

Lord Palmer of Childs Hill: My Lords, like so many other noble Lords, I will concentrate my remarks on the Armed Forces covenant. Mixed up in the covenant are the effects on members of the Armed Forces and the effects on former members of the Armed Forces. I am struck that, unlike the United States of America, where veterans' organisations are courted by politicians and form an effective lobby, here in the UK we seem...
