Leadership candidates unite to back legal protection for troops

Jul 3, 2019

The final two candidates for the Conservative Party’s leadership came together on Armed Forces Day to welcome a Policy Exchange report – Protecting Those Who Serve – which calls for the incoming Prime Minister “to act urgently to protect UK troops, whether serving or retired, from ongoing exposure to legal risk and to unfair legal processes.” Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP and Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP, the Foreign Secretary, were joined by a wide range of international and cross-party supporters. Read the report here, Rt Hon Gavin Williamson MP’s Daily Telegraph op-ed, and further press coverage in the Times, Telegraph and Daily Mail.
