Supporting our Armed Forces families.

Friday, October 7, 2011

Meg Munn, MP for Sheffield Heeley, attended an event organised by The Royal British Legion to highlight the importance of supporting bereaved Armed Forces families.

 

At the event, Meg was told about the Legion’s work to improve the welfare of the Armed Forces family in the local area. She also learnt more about the Legion’s concern that the government should support bereaved Armed Forces families by appointing a Chief Coroner to improve investigations into deaths of Service personnel.

 

Meg said:

 

“The British Legion does very important welfare work for some of my most vulnerable constituents in both the serving and ex-Service communities. It is vital that we, as a nation, are there for those serving in current conflicts, and especially for the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

 

I was grateful for the opportunity to learn more about how the Legion stands shoulder to shoulder with all who serve, including bereaved Armed Forces families. They deserve as much support as we can give them”.

 

Russell Murray, the Legion’s Manager for South & West Yorkshire, said:

 

“Many people don’t realise that we spend nearly 1.4 million a week on helping both the serving and the ex-Service communities, including their families, so we were delighted to tell Meg about the range of services we provide.

 

The Legion is currently celebrating its 90th Anniversary Year, and campaigning for the Armed Forces family is as important to us now as it was in 1921. Our main campaign at the moment is calling on the government to do all they possibly can for bereaved Armed Forces families, specifically by appointing a Chief Coroner to spearhead reform of the inquest system.”
