Motion text

That this House congratulates The Royal British Legion on attaining its 80th anniversary on 1st July; pays tribute to the unceasing work of its members on behalf of ex-service people over the past eight decades since its formation in 1921 from four existing organisations, thus creating Britain's premier ex-service organisation with one voice to speak, very often with beneficial results, on behalf of the ex-service community which today, with dependants, forms nearly a quarter of the population; and wishes all associated with The Royal British Legion further success in the years ahead.
