Implementation Of The Armed Forces Covenant In Northern Ireland
HC 51, First Report of Session 2013-14 - Report, Together with Formal Minutes, Oral and Written Evidence
- House of Commons - Northern Ireland Affairs Committee
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
The report 'Implementation Of The Armed Forces Covenant In Northern Ireland (HC 51)' examines how measures published in the Armed Forces Covenant have been implemented in Northern Ireland.
Due to devolution, variations exist across the regions of the UK as to how health, housing and education services are provided. There are some specific benefits for the Armed Forces Community that exist in Great Britain but are not available in Northern Ireland.
These benefits include:
Improved access to IVF treatment;
Priority in accessing NHS healthcare;
Additional priority in accessing social housing; and
Certain educational entitlements.
The Committee finds that the UK Government must identify any shortfalls in the provision of services to the Armed Forces Community in Northern Ireland, and report on how these will be met; and calls for closer engagement between the UK Government and Northern Ireland Executive on support for the Armed Forces Community.
