Veterans have made a unique contribution to our society, the MP for Penrith and the Border has said, as the government plans to review how to support offenders who had served in the Armed Forces.
Tory MP Rory Stewart, who served in the armed forces and also worked as a local official in Iraq, said:
[We] owe [veterans] a huge debt. Their needs are specific, and it is an honour to have the opportunity to support veterans in this way.
I am very much looking forward to working with veterans organisations, the armed forces and the Ministry of Justice to make sure we have the best programme for veterans in the world.
