I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 8 May 2014, Hansard, column 277W, to Mr Hancock. In addition to the initiatives outlined in that answer, I would also note that the mental health of our personnel and veterans is a top priority for the Government and that is why we have committed £7.2 million to ensure there is extensive mental health support in place for those who need it.
