Taking part in the celebrations to say 'thank you' to all those that are serving in the Armed Forces, their families, veterans and cadets is one of the highlights of this job. We all owe a huge debt to our brave service personnel who work tirelessly keeping this country safe.
In the past year we have already doubled the operational allowance and introduced a pupil premium to help with the education of our forces children. It is with these practical policies that we show our commitment and gratitude to our brave forces.
