PHILIP Milton, the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for North Devon Conservatives, has pledged to do his bit for the British Armed Forces.

He met representatives from The Royal British Legion at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester where he was presented with a copy of the Legion's manifesto for the next General Election.

The manifesto sets out priorities for the next Government to improve conditions for the British Armed Forces past and present and their families. It encourages MPs and Prospective Parliamentary Candidates (PPCs) to "do their bit" for Service Personnel and their families, the bereaved, veterans and dependants.

Philip said, "I was delighted to meet The Royal British Legion. They have an important role to play in highlighting the needs of the whole Armed Forces family. I have pledged to do my bit and would encourage everyone to do the same by visiting the general election manifesto website - www.timetodoyourbit.org.uk - to find out more.
