Defence Spending — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (16 Jul 2019)

Bill Grant: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Anne-Marie Trevelyan) for securing this important and most interesting debate. It is crucial that the UK has robust and reliable combined armed forces that are well trained, properly equipped and ready to respond as required to keep our nation and its people safe and secure. That is ever more important as the threats to our nation...

Orders of the Day: Housing and Regeneration Bill (27 Nov 2007)

Yvette Cooper: The Bill already makes changes that will support those who leave the armed services so that they can be properly treated if they need homelessness assistance or if they are waiting for social housing. We want to do more to help those in or leaving the armed forces to be able to buy affordable housing and shared-ownership housing, and we are already working with the Ministry of Defence on that...

6. Welsh Conservatives debate: support for the armed forces (22 Nov 2017)

Gareth Bennett: Thanks to the Conservatives for bringing today's debate on the important subject of the armed forces covenant. We agree, in UKIP, that a high priority should be given to the welfare of both people serving in the forces and veterans. We are also keen to see the encouragement of cadet activity. So, we broadly share the enthusiasms of the Conservative group in this area, and we commend the...

Armed Forces: Accommodation — Question ( 1 Mar 2012)

Lord Rosser: In the light of the Minister's response, will he therefore confirm that it is the Government's view that reducing the numbers entitled to Armed Forces housing accommodation would be acting outside the spirit and intention of the military covenant, which is there to help to ensure that Armed Forces personnel are not disadvantaged as a result of the unique nature and demands of military service?

1. Questions to the First Minister: Affordable Homes ( 2 Mar 2021)

Mark Drakeford: Thank you to Darren Millar for that important question. I'm very pleased to be able to report that, as part of the enormous effort that has been made by our local authority colleagues, by housing associations and others in the voluntary sector, as he will know, hundreds and hundreds of people who otherwise would have been street homeless in Wales have been offered accommodation in this...

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: Military Covenant (22 Oct 2014)

Anna Soubry: I would, of course, be more than happy to discuss that issue with my hon. Friend and see whether we can sort it out. The armed forces covenant is a clear statement of how members of the armed forces community should expect to be treated, no matter where they live in the country. That reflects the moral obligation we have to all of those who have given so much for their country. Over the past...

Written Answers — Deputy Prime Minister: Housing (13 Mar 2006)

Yvette Cooper: The Housing Corporation does not record data on registered social landlord (RSL) housing provision in such a way as would allow us to give a complete list of those RSLs specialising in housing ex-service personnel except at disproportionate cost. All RSLs may house former members of the armed services provided the RSLs eligibility criteria are met. There are a number of associations which...

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Military Covenant (12 Dec 2007)

Willie Rennie: 1998 did not allow for two major deployments, such as those in Iraq and Afghanistan, at the same time. With overstretch and under-resourcing we are in danger of abusing the good will of the armed forces and turning the can-do ethos into a make-do muddle. I am sure that many people agree that the Iraq campaign was a huge mistake in its own right. It had not only a massive impact on our...

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay ( 1 Nov 2017)

Leo Docherty: ...cap. If the Army pay review board makes a recommendation to the Government about increasing pay, it is likely that the Government will accept it, so it is entirely erroneous to paint a picture of armed forces pay being cut. We must recognise that, broadly, the offer to the armed forces is good. In addition to increases in basic salary, armed forces personnel enjoy subsidised housing and...

Grant Shapps: ...shortly publish its second report on preventing homelessness which will include veterans.

I am determined to ensure that current and former members of the armed forces gain the housing they deserve, recognising the sacrifices they have made for the country. I have...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Veterans: Sleeping Rough (11 Dec 2020)

Kelly Tolhurst: MHCLG does not collect data on how many veterans of European armed forces are sleeping rough. We recognise that our veterans have played a vital role in keeping our country safe and we owe them a duty to ensure they are provided with all the support they need. The annual Statutory Homeless Release for April 2019 to March 2020 showed that, of the total number of households assessed as owed a...

Nato: Armed Forces Covenant (16 May 2011)

David Hamilton: For decades many members of the armed forces have felt betrayed by Governments of all colours, so this is not a party-political issue. I am glad that the Secretary of State is going to take a line from Midlothian council, which has always held priority housing for those who leave the armed forces. I welcome his conversion, and the fact that he has finally taken that need on board. However,...

Business of the House (20 Oct 2016)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: debate in Westminster Hall yesterday on the Ministry of Defence future accommodation model, I have been inundated with concerned messages from military families overnight.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Future Accommodation Model (15 Jan 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: I do not quite recognise those figures. We have worked with the families federations to establish exactly what the armed forces want, and they want choice, particularly the youngsters who come in. Some will want to continue living on the garrison, but others will want to get on the housing ladder, and we need to help them; that is what we need to do for our armed forces.

Armed Forces: Transition to Civilian Life - Question (15 Jun 2021)

Lord McCrea of Magherafelt and Cookstown: My Lords, I recognise the many challenges faced by the members of the Armed Forces in the transition to civilian life, whether it be need for housing or professional care because of physical or mental incapacity through conflict. Can the Minister assure me that all former members of the Armed Forces are equally provided for across the United Kingdom, including those in Northern Ireland?

Armed Forces (Service Complaints and Financial Assistance) Bill ( 2 Feb 2015)

Anna Soubry: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. Our armed forces risk their lives to safeguard our peace and prosperity, and their welfare must therefore be a priority for any Government.
