COR­BYN PLEDGE TO VET­ER­ANS

The People - - NEWS FEATURES -

LABOUR is back­ing the Sun­day Peo­ple’s cam­paign to get the Govern­ment to log of­fi­cially the sui­cides of vet­er­ans.

Crit­ics say lack of ac­cu­rate fig­ures make treat­ment dif­fi­cult to or­gan­ise.

Labour leader Jeremy Cor­byn, who will at­tend sev­eral events mark­ing Re­mem­brance Sun­day, is also un­veil­ing the party’s vet­er­ans strat­egy to­day. He said: “While many or­gan­i­sa­tions do fan­tas­tic work to give men­tal health sup­port, char­ity alone is not enough.

“The next Labour govern­ment will guar­an­tee armed forces per­son­nel the op­por­tu­nity to have a home, to heal and to re­train.”
