Armed Forces Bill - Select Committee publishes its Report

The Select Committee on the Armed Forces Bill has announced the publication today of its Special Report on the Armed Forces Bill. The Committee was tasked by the House of Commons to scrutinise the Bill which makes various changes to existing Military Law.

The Committee has taken evidence from a range of witnesses and made several visits to military establishments around the UK.

The Report notes the complex debate surrounding the Military Covenant, and outlines the Committee’s findings on a range of matters, including the work of the Service Complaints Commissioner for the Armed Forces.

The Armed Forces Bill will undergo further stages in the House of Commons in the coming weeks.
