Increased compensation for injured troops

At long last the UK Government has started to go some way to providing appropriate financial compensation to troops who have sustained injuries in the service of their country. The Government has had to be goaded into taking this decision by increasing pressure from the general public who have been shocked to hear of the derisable pay-offs previously awarded to the injured and their families. The new level of payment still does not go far enough and the British people will have to continue to pressure the Government to "Honour the Covenant".
