This morning I led for @UKLabour in committee this morning on scrutiny of the Draft Armed Forces (Continuation) Order 2022.
Labour’s support for our Armed Forces is unshakeable, they embody the very best of Britain. From deployments abroad in response to the invasion of Ukraine, to deployments at home, especially during the Covid pandemic, our Armed Forces are an essential part of our national defence, our national resilience and our NATO obligations to our allies.
We should be proud of how servicemen and women in the Armed Forces represent this country beyond our shores, across the world.
The provide vital training to other nations, serving on peacekeeping missions, and stepping in to provide humanitarian relief in the wake of hurricanes and other disasters.
Above all, they bravely stand ready to defend our country at all times. It is the ultimate public service and we should be incredibly grateful for their continued service.
