Conservative leadership contenders sign Veterans Pledge

Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak have both signed the Sun’s Veterans Pledge to support servicemen and women – and vowed to end the witch hunts of Northern Ireland troops.

Truss and Sunak have promised to keep a special office for veterans’ affairs fully funded at £5million a year, complete with its Cabinet-level minister.

They have also agreed whichever of them wins the Tory leadership race would put an end to the vexatious prosecution of veterans who served during the Troubles.

The Sun deserves credit for taking up the fight on behalf of our veterans and their families.
