Portsmouth South MP Stephen Morgan has joined the parliamentary armed forces scheme.

The scheme gives MPs direct experience of life in the armed forces – something Mr Morgan says he is excited about, after his grandfather’s involvement in the D-Day landings.

He said: ‘This experience will allow more informed debate in parliament.

‘I relish this opportunity as another way to champion the views of those who work so hard to defend our country.’
