Armed Forces Bill — Clause 2 — Armed Forces Covenant Report — Minister for Former Armed Services Personnel — 14 Jun 2011 at 19:30

The majority of MPs voted against requiring a Minister for Former Armed Services Personnel, rather than the Secretary of State for Defence, to report each year on the armed forces covenant.

MPs were considering the Armed Forces Bill[1] The amendment rejected by the majority of MPs was:

  • Amendment 2, page 2, line 5, leave out ‘Secretary of State’ and insert ‘Minister for Former Armed Services Personnel’.

This would have affected Clause 2 of the Bill[2], which sought to amend the Armed Forces Act 2006 to include a clause stating:

  • (1) The Secretary of State must in each calendar year—
  • (a) prepare an armed forces covenant report; and
  • (b) lay a copy of the report before Parliament.

The same MP who proposed the amendment voted on in this vote, Mr Elfyn Llwyd, also proposed[3] a new clause which would included the provision:

  • A Minister shall be appointed within the Cabinet Office who shall be known as the Minister for Former Armed Services Personnel

At the time of the vote there was no Minister for Former Armed Services Personnel, presumably those voting in favour of the amendment which was the subject of this vote were also expressing support for creating such a post.
