EDM | Atomic Test Veterans (No. 2)

Posted on: 27th June 2011

Andrew George MP has signed EDM number 1956 in 2010-11, proposed by Jim Sheridan on 21/06/2011.

The motion reads,

That this House recognises the sacrifice of the UK’s atomic test veterans; notes that many test veterans are now ill; further notes that many countries have paid compensation to ex-service personnel who were exposed to atomic tests; believes that atomic test veterans fulfilled their military duties in good faith; and urges the Government to make an ex-gratia payment to the UK’s atomic test veterans.
