Petition Prevent the Government from widening the scope of combat immunity.

Servicemen and women injured during combat will be shut out of the justice system under new Government plans to widen the scope of combat immunity to stop claims of negligence coming to court.

More details

Under the proposals, combat immunity - which provides an exemption from legal liability for members of the armed forces and the government - would apply to all claims brought by those in combat, even when failings occurred far from the battlefield.
