unstar this property answer text <p>The majority of service-leavers make a successful transition into civilian life, due in no small part to the ethos and skills they develop during their Service careers. For those who struggle, the Government is committed to ensuring they receive the support they need and are treated with the dignity they deserve.</p><p> </p><p>One of the key tenets of the Covenant is that the Armed Forces community should, in some cases, be afforded special consideration. That is why, subject to clinical need, veterans receive priority care from NHS England and in the Devolved Administrations.</p><p> </p><p>Over the past five years we have allocated £40 million to support veterans with accommodation needs. In addition, the Chancellor announced in March that a new £25 million fund would be set up, to which charities can apply to assist our elderly veterans. These are the people to whom our nation turned at the most perilous moments in our history, and it is absolutely right that we recognise their needs now.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The A400M Atlas development programme is nearing completion and the aircraft is already in service with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and other air forces.</p><p>The Haddon-Cave report made a number of recommendations, including the establishment of the Military Aviation Authority (MAA) as the body responsible for the governance of all aspects of military aviation and to refresh the regulatory framework. The Atlas aircraft operated by the RAF are compliant with MAA regulations, either prescriptively or by an acceptable alternative means of compliance. In addition, the In service support service based at RAF Brize Norton that maintains these aircraft is also regulated by the MAA, and has received all of the required approvals.</p><p>More specifically, the operation of the RAF Atlas fleet follows the construct recommended in the Haddon-Cave report, namely that a Duty Holder governs the use of the aircraft, and that a release to service authority provides the operating approval, and also approves the certification basis of the aircraft. A separate engineering authority provides the approved data for the aircraft, and the RAF continuing airworthiness management organization operates within the bounds of the approved data, under the authority of the delivery duty holder. Any modifications to the aircraft will be managed by the independent, multinational certification and qualification organization, with any major design changes also being approved by the MAA.</p>
