Written Question to The Cabinet Office


To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what discussions he has had with Ministers in his Department on introducing formal recognition by the Government for heroic actions taken during the covid-19 outbreak.

Chloe Smith:

Further to the answer given by my Rt Hon Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster during his oral statement on 28 April 2020, the Government will ensure recognition is both timely and appropriate and is reflective of the profound gratitude the nation feels towards everyone on the frontline.
