Motion text

That this House notes the important contribution made by Her Majesty's Armed Forces in defending the United Kingdom's national interests; recognises their commitment and professionalism in the service of the country both at home and abroad; further recognises that following the end of their careers in the armed forces many servicemen and women and their families face considerable difficulties in securing housing appropriate to their needs as civilians; and believes housing associations and the Government should review housing allocation policy in respect of establishing local connections to ensure that former members of the armed forces are not discriminated against when applying for housing.
