answer text <p>The prosecution of veterans is something that we take very seriously. Our Service personnel are of course subject to the law, but veterans should not have to face repeated investigations many years after the events in question. This is why we have just completed a public consultation on proposed legal protections measures for serving personnel and veterans. Once we have analysed the responses, we will bring forward legislation.</p> more like this

answer text <p>I understand and sympathise with the veterans affected. However, the issue of pre-1975 pensions is common to all contemporary public service schemes. Given the likely number of former employees, the financial impact of resolving legacy pension issues is expected to be very significant. There would also be potentially overwhelming practical and administrative difficulties in recreating precise service and pay records and calculating pension awards for people who served about half a century ago, or for their surviving dependants.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The RAF's P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft is produced by Boeing at its production facilities in Seattle and is based on the 737-Next Generation civil airliner, the supply chain for which includes a range of UK manufacturing companies. Boeing estimates that around 5% of every P-8 aircraft produced globally is UK content. UK produced components are used in all P-8 aircraft, not just those ordered for the RAF, meaning that UK industry and manufacturers are involved with, and benefit from, every P-8 aircraft produced, including the one hundred or so aircraft already delivered and in-service worldwide.</p> more like this
