I can tell the Minister that my inbox tells a rather different story. What they want is to be paid properly, to have decent working conditions and employment conditions, and their families to be supported better. But let me ask this.

Will he match that for all UK personnel working here and abroad to help fight the pandemic in the upcoming Budget—yes or no?
