Labour MP backs veterans’ support plans


A Welsh Labour MP today backed Welsh Conservative calls for better support from the Welsh Government for veterans.


Welsh Conservatives have long championed a Veterans’ Card to give former armed forces personnel priority access to healthcare, including aural treatment as well as home adaptation, an extension of the free bus pass scheme and free swimming.


Mark Isherwood AM, Shadow Minister for Communities and Housing, said, "Welsh Conservatives have championed better rights for our ex-armed forces personnel who have made significant personal sacrifices to keep the people of Britain safe.


"We have pressed the Welsh Government to introduce a Veterans’ Card to give a clear statement of the rights of veterans and recognise the contribution they have made.
