Motion text

That this House welcomes the recent willingness of the armed forces to adapt work to accommodate injuries and illnesses of their personnel; notes the potential advantages of unifying the medical board procedures of the three armed forces; hopes that free and open dialogue conducted in an unintimidating and informative environment will characterise the boarding process so that the right decision for the individual and organisation is reached; and urges the Government to do all it can to facilitate a smooth transition to civilian life of good quality for those who are not retained in the armed forces.
