Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Report: Amendment 14 (13 Apr 2021)

Lord Dannatt: ...we have a common objective in doing the right thing by our serving and veteran personnel, then I fail to see why clearly setting out a duty of care is causing so much difficulty for the Ministry of Defence.

They were frequently meat and drink to a defence lawyer who did not have much greater ammunition. I will mention rape trials as an example. Whenever the defences consent, in my experience, the chances of a London jury convicting when no...
