Sixth Annual Report of the Service Complaints Commissioner

Vernon Coaker MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, responding to the sixth Annual Report of the Service Complaints Commissioner, said:

 

"The Annual Report of the Service Complaints Commissioner shows a disturbing rise in the number of complaints of bullying, harassment and discrimination in the Armed Forces, particularly the Army.

 

"A year ago Labour called for an Armed Forces Ombudsman to be established in order to provide better protection for our service personnel. Following the Government’s announcement earlier this month that it would finally create an Ombudsman, we now urge Ministers to waste no more time and to act quickly to deliver these much-needed reforms."
