leave out from `Scheme' to end and add `; recognises the valued initiative, contribution and great work by Sir Neil Thorne in founding and running this scheme throughout the past 22 years for the benefit of improved practical understanding of the armed forces and all who serve in them, for the education of hon. Members of most parties and of no party from both Houses who have experience of the scheme at a junior level, seeing at first hand the dedication, bravery and heroism of those who serve in the regular and reserve forces often in dangerous circumstances to the admiration of the UK's NATO allies who wish their national political representatives had a similar opportunity; notes that there is no medal available to hon. Members taking part in the scheme and that the use of appropriate clothing in the field is necessary; and invites hon. Members from any party which has not yet taken part in the scheme to volunteer to do so.'.
