Falklands Visit for Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme

Eleven UK MPs visited the military base in the Falkland Islands under the auspices of the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme, which seeks to provide MPs with first-hand knowledge of the role and functions of the Army, Navy and RAF.  Arriving in the Falklands on 30 July, the group included Roger Gale, MP for Thanet North, who warned that UK Defence chiefs should not let the war in Afghanistan distract them from the needs of other British soldiers around the world, such as those in the Falkland Islands.
