On the 30th anniversary of the end of the Falklands war, Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, Jim Murphy said:
“Today is a day to remember all those who lost their lives during the Falklands conflict.
“Thirty years ago all who fought did so to protect British sovereignty as well as the principle of self-determination. Both remain vital to maintain today.
“We should reflect on the contribution of our military to our national security and wellbeing. Their actions overseas keep us safe at home while the values they uphold shape Britain’s influence in the world.
“It is all of our duty to support our Forces and to work to ensure the whole British service community gets the care it deserves.”
