Forces Pension Society: Covenant Task Force report 'incredibly wet and feeble'

The report of the independent Covenant Task Force led by Professor Hew Strachan was released by the Government on 08 Dec 2010.

Vice-Admiral Sir Michael Moore, Chairman of the respected Forces Pension Society, has told The Times that the report is "incredibly wet and feeble."

 

"It is flute music and arm-waving," he said. "There is nothing of any substance, with just a couple of no-cost ideas to get local communities to support the forces for anyone who does so to be respected."
