Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit (Under-occupancy Penalty) (27 Feb 2013)

Steve Webb: Let us address the position of armed forces personnel specifically, because there has been an awful lot of misinformation about that. A married member of the armed forces is unaffected, so if someone is living with a spouse and goes away to fight—[Interruption.] Let me work my way through—they will be unaffected.

Scottish Parliament: Veterans and Armed Forces Community (16 Nov 2017)

Daniel Johnson: .... Twenty, 30 or 40 years ago, most of us would have had a family member who had either seen action in the second world war or, at the very least, had gone through national service in one of our armed services. As the number of people with direct experience of service diminishes, we need to take greater care to change our thoughts and views about what remembrance means. Remembrance must...

Armed Forces: Redundancy — Statement ( 2 Mar 2011)
