|Stuart King Pledges To “do his bit” For Armed Forces|
Labour's man met with The Royal British Legion during Party conference
Stuart King met with representatives from The Royal British Legion at the recent Labour party conference in Brighton where he was presented with a copy of the Legion's manifesto for the next general election.
The manifesto sets out priorities for the next Government to improve conditions for the British Armed Forces past and present and their families. It encourages MPs and prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) to “do their bit” for Service Personnel and their families, the bereaved, veterans and dependants.
Kevin Shinkwin, the Legion's Head of Public Affairs, said, “We're really grateful to Stuart for making the time to meet with us and listen to our concerns. Our message to every candidate standing at the general election is very simple: ‘It's time to do your bit'.
“The entire Armed Forces family needs the support of politicians from all parties,” he added. “Our manifesto outlines practical ways the next government can help, and we hope all the parties will give it serious consideration”.
