Select Committee on the Armed Forces Bill launches survey on Bill
22 March 2021
The Select Committee on the Armed Forces Bill launches a survey, hoping to hear from a range of individuals, including serving personnel of the Armed Forces, veterans, the families of personnel and veterans, and civilians subject to service law, on the forthcoming Bill.
The survey will aid the Committee’s scrutiny of the Bill and elements of the results may be used in the Committee’s final report.
The survey covers a range of issues related to the Bill and the Committee’s scrutiny of the Bill. The survey asks whether the Bill addresses the practical problems the Armed Forces face and whether legislation has been applied evenly, regardless of location, rank and status as currently serving personnel or veteran. The form includes questions on the prosecution of serious crimes within the military, as well as the complaints process and safeguarding.
The survey will be open until 5 PM on Monday 5 April and will take roughly five minutes to complete. Respondents must remain anonymous in their answers.
