As expected the focus of the Committee was on the Armed Forces Covenant and the amendments introduced by the Government to put the principles of the Covenant on a statutory footing.

The Government’s amendments on both the Armed Forces Covenant and the call-out of the Reserves were subsequently adopted after debate. A number of other amendments and new clauses relating to the Covenant, base closures, and the enlistment of minors were either withdrawn or fell after debate (Amendments 2-4, amendment 17, new clauses 1-7, new clauses 11, 13 and 14); while several were also defeated on division (amendment 16 and new clauses 15 and 17).

The following note is a brief summary of the main points raised during the Committee.

The Bill, as amended, is now Bill 202 of Session 2010-12.
