Currently there is a Private members Bill passing to its second reading in the house of commons that asks, the government to pass a law to provide a system of national service for young persons.
We the undersigned do not want our children and grandchildren to be forced to undertake military style training or conscription in to the military for any reason that is not voluntary. It is unacceptable to force any person to engage in military training and or actual service in the military without their guardians express permissions. We do not want our children and grandchildren to fight and die in wars, or in training that they or we have no control over. We ask that the Private Members Bill, The National Service Bill 2013-14 be rejected and that our government reassure us that military style training, or service will always be a freedom of choice and not a system of conscription imposed upon UK citizens, especially young people.
