Armed Forces Pay

EDM number 326 in 2017-19, proposed by Ruth Smeeth on 14/09/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Armed forces and Pay.

That this House notes that the pay of Armed Forces personnel has been capped at one per cent in 2017-18 and that this represents another below-inflation pay settlement; further notes that the size of the Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Navy and Royal Marines is below stated targets; notes that dissatisfaction with pay has been identified by service personnel as a reason for leaving their respective force; and calls on the Government to end the public sector pay cap for the Armed Forces and give Armed Forces personnel a fair pay rise.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
