Armed Forces Day

It's Armed Forces Day and a good opportunity to thank our service personnel and veterans.

It was great to meet veteran William Cairns of Mountains Mend Minds and Walking with the Wounded, recently along with Cllr Colm Merrick to discuss the work William is doing in East Ren to support our veteran community.


I was interested today to read this article talking about the work my colleage, Stewart McDonald MP, SNP Defence Spokesperson has been doing with colleagues, looking at improvements required to the employment conditions of service personnel, and noting that in an independent Scotland, this could be one of the blueprints for how we manage service personnel in a fairer and more supportive way: https://planetradio.co.uk/.../snp-armed-forces-overhaul.../
