I welcome today’s announcement that the stress and worry that this inquiry has caused to service personnel and veterans will soon be brought to an end- Griffith

Nia Griffith MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary,
commenting on the decision to close down The Iraq Historic Allegations Team,
said:

“I
welcome today’s announcement that the stress and worry that this inquiry has
caused to service personnel and veterans will soon be brought to an end.

"I completely
condemn the spurious and untrue allegations that have been levelled against
service members and veterans. Labour has long said that anyone facing
investigation should be properly supported by the Government. 

"It
is now important that the inquiry’s work is completed promptly and properly in
order to eliminate any risk of these vexatious claims arising again in
future.”
