Stephen Morgan responds to news Military Medals will be restored to personnel discharged on basis of sexuality

Stephen Morgan MP, Labour’s Shadow Armed Forces Minister, responding to the Government’s announcement that Military Medals will be restored to personnel discharged on the basis of their sexuality, said:

“This is an important step towards justice for those who were thrown out of our armed forces simply because of their sexuality.

“Ministers must now consider the restoration of ranks, pensions and other forms of compensation to appropriately honour those who have served our country with courage and distinction.”
