Sharon Hodgson: On a point of order, Mr Sunderland. I place on the record my thanks to you for the excellent way in which you have chaired the Committee over the last few weeks.

As I have...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 13 - Indefinite leave to remain payments by Commonwealth members of armed forces (31 Mar 2021)

Sharon Hodgson: I would like to move new clause 14 formally, Mr Sunderland. I listened intently to what the Minister said. With regard to both new clause 14 and new clause 15, I know that he says it would be an undue burden to ask this question and record this information, but I really think it is very important and useful, and I cannot see how collecting it would be anything other than a help, rather than a...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 14 - Statistics to be reported as part of the Armed Forces Covenant Report (31 Mar 2021)

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 7 - Welfare of Operation Banner veterans (31 Mar 2021)

I am therefore very proud to serve on this Committee alongside him. I rise to speak to new...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 3 - Report on health and education outcomes (25 Mar 2021)

New clause 9 would expand the powers of the service complaints ombudsman to include matters relating to the armed forces covenant. This would provide service personnel and veterans with an avenue through which they could report...

With one scam charging for a fake vaccine on the doorstep, will the Minister detail what steps the...

Defence: Mental Health Support for Veterans (15 Mar 2021)

Sharon Hodgson: Last week, we saw Meghan Markle speaking out about how her pleas for support for her mental health crisis were dismissed.

Treasury: Self-isolation: Financial Barriers (9 Mar 2021)

Sharon Hodgson: In November, a constituent of mine was told to isolate via the NHS covid-19 app. She would have been eligible for the isolation payment, but as she was told to isolate via the app, she was never given an NHS Test and Trace account ID, and therefore her application could go no further. My constituent was affected financially as she could not work, and she has been going round in circles, even...
