Dr Dan supports the Stradbroke Royal British Legion Military Wives' Concert

Dr Dan chats to a local volunteer at the gift concert held by the Stradbroke and District branch of the Royal British LegionLast Saturday, it was a real pleasure for Dan to take part in a gift concert held by the Stradbroke and District branch of the Royal British Legion, in aid of the Wattisham Airbase military wives. Music was provided by the Gislingham Silver Band as a series of readings and poems were delivered focusing on the vital role that the wives and partners of soldiers play in supporting their loved ones when they are away on military duty. Members of the audience were asked to bring a wrapped Christmas present for the soldier’s wives with an attached card or message. Dan read out a poem before praising the volunteers at the Stradbroke and District branch of the Royal British Legion for all their efforts in raising awareness about the challenges facing military wives in Suffolk.

The conflict in Afghanistan has brought home to many in Suffolk the daily sacrifices made by British servicemen and women for their country, and it is always important to recognise the bravery and courage of those who continue to serve in our Armed Forces, along with their wives and partners.

Dan would like to extend his thanks to Brian and Joyce Cooper for inviting him to take part in the concert, and he will continue to support the invaluable work of the Royal British Legion going forward.

I am sure the Minister will go away and think about that in the context of the PFI and whether something more could be done to help with the PFI debt.

Daniel Poulter: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I draw your attention and that of Members to my declaration in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. It is probably worth pointing out, too, that I had the pleasure of being a medical student at King’s many years ago. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) on securing...
