Motion text

That this House congratulates the Sunday People on its Save Our Soldiers campaign to raise awareness of the devastating impact of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); notes Lord Dannatt's view that failure to recognise PTSD as a serious and debilitating condition breaches the Military Covenant and the Government is therefore breaking the law; calls for an independent inquiry to explore any link between incidents of suicide amongst veterans and PTSD and how better to co-ordinate help across the country for those affected; and asks the Ministry of Defence to give PTSD the priority it warrants.
