Wrexham's MP has pledged to be a 'strong voice' for veterans.
Sarah Atherton MP has been elected as the Vice-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Veterans.
Since her election in December 2019, Ms Atherton said she has been a strong voice for veterans and Armed Service personnel in Wrexham and Westminster.
In February, the Wrexham MP was elected onto the Defence Select Committee and is a member of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Armed Forces.
Since her appointment to the Committee in February, she has called for the introduction of a veteran’s railcard in Wales, and for the abolition of Visa fees for Commonwealth Military personnel.
Commenting on her appointment as Vice-Chair, Ms Atherton said:
“As a former soldier, I am committed to supporting our veterans for the valuable contribution they’ve made to our country.
“I am incredibly honoured to have been appointed at the Vice-Chair for the All-Party Parliamentary Group for veterans. I look forward to working cross-party with colleagues in Westminster to be a strong voice for Veterans in Westminster.”
