Volume 495: debated on Monday 29 June 2009

Bullying (Armed Forces)

I have a petition from more than 160 residents and others in my constituency. The names were collected on the streets of Gloucester by a former member of the armed forces.

The petition states:

The Petition of those concerned about bullying in the Armed Forces,

Declares that bullying in the British Army should be stopped once and for all.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Defence to take firm and positive action to ensure that bullying in the British Army is once and for all put a stop to now.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
