Thousands of application withdrawals this year from Armed Forces recruitment – Stephen Morgan

Stephen Morgan MP, Shadow Armed Forces Minister, responding to the news that the number of people withdrawing from Armed Forces recruitment has increased by over 7,000 this year, said:

“The worrying increase of over seven thousand application withdrawals this year continues this Government’s decade of decline in failing to support our country’s Armed Forces and its recruits.

“Whilst the Minister claims to be looking to improve the Armed Forces ‘offer’, its failing recruitment contract is clearly not working.”
