Armed Forces Act recieves Royal Assent

This week the our Armed Forces Act received Royal Assent – improving access to key public services as we support those who risk their lives for this country. 

  • Our Armed Forces risk their lives for this country and it is vital that we recognise the sacrifices they have made by ensuring that they are not disadvantaged when accessing key public services.  
  • That is why the Armed Forces Act – which this week received Royal Assent – enshrines the Armed Forces Covenant into law, improves the Service Justice System, and increases access to services like healthcare, education and housing for serving personnel, veterans, and their families. 
  • This Act builds on the progress which the Conservatives have already made improving the lives of Armed Forces personnel – which is no less than they deserve after risking their lives for this country.
