Nick pledges to ‘do his bit’ for the British Armed Forces

September 27, 2009

Royal British Legion 09Nick Perry, Lib Dem Parliamentary Campaigner for Hastings & Rye has pledged to do his bit for the British Armed Forces family.

Nick met with representatives from The Royal British Legion at the recent Liberal Democrat party conference in Bournemouth where he was presented with a copy of the Legion’s manifesto for the next general election.

The manifesto sets out priorities for the next Government to improve conditions for the British Armed Forces past and present and their families. It encourages MPs and prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) to ‘do their bit’ for Service Personnel and their families, the bereaved, veterans and dependants.

Kevin Shinkwin, the Legion’s Head of Public Affairs, said, “We’re really grateful to Nick for making the time to meet with us and listen to our concerns. Our message to every candidate standing at the general election is very simple: ‘It’s time to do your bit’.

“The entire Armed Forces family needs the support of politicians from all parties,” he added. “Our manifesto outlines practical ways the next government can help, and we hope all the parties will give it serious consideration”.

Nick said, “I was delighted to meet with The Royal British Legion. They have an important role to play nationally and in Hastings & Rye, highlighting the needs of the whole Armed Forces family. I have pledged to do my bit and would encourage everyone to do the same by visiting the general election manifesto website – http://www.timetodoyourbit.org.uk – to find out more.”
