Greens respond to Conservative plans for national conscription for 18 year olds

Responding to the news that The Conservatives plan to bring back national conscription, Green Party Co-Leader, Carla Denyer said,

“This policy is removed from reality. It is not what our military needs and it certainly isn’t what our young people need.

“What young people tell us they need is access to the housing market, to higher education that doesn’t plunge them into debt, and to meaningful jobs that pay well.

“Not military conscription.

“It is striking just how removed this Conservative government is from the priorities of young people today”.
