Petition for fair and full compensation for the Armed Forces

The government's shameful decision to seek to reduce (by 70%) the compensation paid to two injured soldiers has sparked a petition demanding comparable levels of compensation for the military as is paid in civil cases.

The petition castigates the MoD for the disgraceful way it is trying to claw back the compensation from the very people for whom it should have a duty of care, all in the interests of budget saving.
