Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what arrangements they made to mark Armed Forces Day in Northern Ireland. [HL4943]

Armed Forces Day 2009 was a resounding success with local communities organising the vast majority of events throughout the UK to show their support for our Armed Forces and veterans. In Northern Ireland the MoD provided funding to the event held in Carrickfergus.

Armed Forces Day events also took place in Ballymena, Coleraine and Portglenone.
