James Heappey – 2021 Comments on Getting Vaccines to Overseas Territory of Tristan da Cunha

The comments made by James Heappey, the Minister for the Armed Forces, on 29 April 2021.

This operation to transport vaccines to one of the most remote parts of the world, reaffirms our commitment to the people of our Overseas Territories.

The Armed Forces take great pride in supporting our people, at home or abroad, whenever and wherever needed. I am immensely proud of all Royal Navy and RAF personnel involved in this mission and the role they have played in helping to deliver vaccines to the people of Tristan da Cunha safely and quickly.
