To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, whether his Department will respond to the recommendations listed in the 2022 Forward Assist and Salute Her UK Privileged Access Interview Report titled Exit Wounds: Members of the Veteran LGBTQ+ Community Share their Lived Experience of Life Before, During and After Service in the UK Military.

I pay tribute to the work of those involved in this important research. While the Government has no formal obligation to respond to this study, I acknowledge its recommendations and have asked the Office for Veterans' Affairs to consider them carefully. In addition, I am confident that this study, along with a range of other evidence, will be considered by the upcoming Independent LGBT Veterans Review, which the government will formally respond to in due course.
