There are calls for the government to re-think its decision to cut funding for the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
The MP for Lichfield, Michael Fabricant, has called the removal of the grant a national disgrace, saying:
> "This is an embarrassment and a national disgrace. I shall work with the NMA to pile the pressure on the Ministry of Defence into supplying adequate funding... The National Memorial Arboretum and the Armed Forces Memorial are an iconic centre for national remembrance."
The arboretum contains the National Armed Forces Memorial dedicated to the 16,000 servicemen and women who have died since the Second World War.
