Motion text

That this House applauds the excellent work done by the UK armed forces and the Government's commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant which supports those who have given the most, such as the injured and those who died in service; notes that many service personnel who have lost their lives while serving do not have their names inscribed on the Armed Forces National Memorial although they have all sworn allegiance to their country and undertaken strenuous training; further notes a great many of the said personnel have completed years of service with a significant number of them having served on active operational tours of duty; recognises that the National Memorial Arboretum was set up as a special place for honouring those who served the nation; and supports the suggestion, upon consultation with the Arboretum trustees, that a separate Armed Forces Service Memorial be included at the Arboretum for those who died since World War II, either in service or as a consequence of their service, affording the opportunity to their bereaved families to pay their respects in a special place of honour.
