Ex-soldier Tom Tugendhat applauded at end of Afghanistan speech

Conservative MP Tom Tugendhat, a former soldier who served in Afghanistan, was applauded following an emotive Commons speech. He recalled the efforts of the military, aid workers, journalists and others who worked in the country, before noting: “I know that we’ve all been struggling and if this recall has done one thing… I’ve spoken to the Health Secretary, he’s already made a commitment to do more for veterans’ mental health.”
