Stewart McDonald MP, and SNP Spokesperson for Defence, called for a debate on the "scandal" that the MoD does not record the rate of suicides amongst former servicemen and women.
Stewart McDonald said:
"Suicide is always tragic and devastating. When our own servicemen and women, having gone to the battlefield, feel so neglected by the MoD that ending their life seems like their only option then it is a deeply shameful failure on all of us.
"They deserve better. They deserve the best care that the state is able to offer. Let’s honour them in actions, not just words."
