Mark raises case of Gus Hales’ hunger strike in House of Commons

26th November 2018

Mark raises the case of Gus Hales, who has been on hunger strike outside Combat Stress, and asks the Government what more can be done to get Gus the help he so badly needs.

The Secretary of State will be aware of the case of Gus Hales who has been on hunger strike outside Combat Stress in my constituency. What more can the Ministry of Defence do to work with Combat Stress to get Gus the help that he so badly needs?

I have spoken to Gus Hales. I am very sorry about what has happened to him. I have also spoken to Combat Stress. We need to make sure that people such as Gus who have served this country are looked after. I will make sure that this is not repeated and, working with Combat Stress, make sure that his needs are looked after.
