Marching members of the armed forces

Jeremy Corbyn has marked Armistice Day with five major pledges to support the armed forces and their families.

Labour’s upcoming manifesto will include pledges for

  1. Fair Pay: Labour will scrap the public sector pay cap. 
  2. Decent housing: the next Labour government will end the growing reliance on the private rented sector. 
  3. A voice for service men and women: Labour will consult on creating a representative body, similar to the Police Federation. 
  4. Ending privatisation: Labour will conduct a root and branch review of outsourcing.
  5. Support for forces children: the next Labour government will ensure better access to schools with a dedicated local authorities admissions strategy to help with frequent school moves.


Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party, said:

“Real security requires decent pay, decent housing, support for our armed forces and their families, and a way to get their voice heard.”
