GOSPORT MP Caroline Dinenage has called for employers to support reservists in the armed forces.

Ms Dinenage spoke during a debate on the government’s plans for reservists.

It intends to invest £1.8bn to make them an integral part of the armed forces.

Ms Dinenage said: ‘As someone who has run a small business for 20 years, I know that for all reservists, successful service in the military depends on the support of their employers.’
