James Heappey – 2021 Comments on Help for People on St. Vincent

The comments made by James Heappey, the Armed Forces Minister, on 12 June 2021.

Recent events on St Vincent were a tragedy, but disasters like this are precisely why we have Royal Navy assets deployed to the Caribbean – to provide vital relief and assistance to people there when needed in times of crisis.

Our servicemen and women were able to act quickly and decisively when this request came in, delivering these essential supplies to where they needed to be within hours.
