Wiltshire has many proud links with our armed forces, and I wish both those serving and veterans living in Wiltshire, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I echo the Prime Ministers recent words about recognising the unique commitment our armed forces make. All of us in Wiltshire know that we have the very best armed forces on our doorsteps, and we are all very proud to do so.
I am very pleased that Wiltshire Council have an Armed Forces Project Officer to help raise understanding of the Armed Forces Covenant. I recently met David Wood and his role is to ensure that the covenant is understood by service providers and businesses and that military personnel also fully understand what they are entitled to.
