I have just ben sent this mail at work and thought it would be of interst to all.
Im not sure if anyone has seen this before so I thought Id better post it just in case. Please be aware of the deadline
All those either receiving or planning to receive a Military Pension should review the Govt's 'No 10' Petition at http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/Military-Pension/sign
. Its premise is that, "the military pension is a pension that has been earned over a sustained period in the service of HM The Queen. The Government is requested to remove all tax liability on that pension or at least remove it from being considered as income when establishing tax liability". While a successful outcome for the Petition may be slight, such petitions can change Govt policy and every serving member and Service veteran is encouraged to sign up without delay. Please pass this information on to your friends and colleagues who may be unaware of the Petition. The deadline for the petition is 19 Sep 09.
All the best
