You can see Bob's most recent appearances in Parliament below:
“Right honourable” is very good.
My right hon. Friend is absolutely right. Most men on the ground were petrified that, by accident, they would kill an innocent person.
I served for more than three years in Northern Ireland, on seven operational tours. I first went there in 1970.
My right hon. Friend is right: it was taken a long time ago. We must remember that most of our young men were 18 or 19 years old.
I intervene simply because the command structure does not really come into it. The decision is in the yellow card.

Will my right hon. Friend give way?
I completed seven tours in Northern Ireland, all with the infantry or associated units.
