Armed Forces Bill Committee

Welcome to the Select Committee on the Armed Forces Bill webpage.

An Armed Forces Bill is required every five years in order to continue in force the provisions of the current Service legislation relating to Service discipline, and to make any amendments.

The Select Committee on the Armed Forces Bill goes through the Bill formally, clause by clause, and makes amendments if it wishes; it may also take formal evidence and make visits. As well as reporting the Bill to the House the select committee may make a Special Report to the House of its findings and recommendations.

The Committee stage of the Armed Forces Bill has now concluded. The Armed Forces Bill will undergo further stages in the House of Commons in the coming weeks.

Keep up to date with the progress of the Armed Forces Bill going through Parliament.
