Today marks one hundred years since the first Armistice Day commemorations in which the sacrifices made by all those who fought in the Great War were remembered.
A century on, we are adding to the support and resources we give our Armed Forces to recognise all they have done for their country by introducing an armed force package which will support military personnel, veterans and their families and recognise the sacrifice they have made for their country. The measures include:
- Wrapround childcare for armed forces families
- a guaranteed job interview for veterans
- A proposed tax cut for every business that employs an ex member of the armed forces
- A railcard for veterans.
We're also making a manifesto commitment to protect our armed forces from vexatious legal claims by ending the unfair trials of people who served their country.
