Saqib Bhatti MP kicked off the new year with a PMQ to celebrate Edna Constable, a resident of Fountains Care Home, who turned 100 years old last week. He went on to commend care workers who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic.
Speaking in the House of Commons in its first sitting since Christmas recess, Saqib said:
"Last week, my constituent, Edna Constable, turned 100 years old. She lived through the Second World War, and now, of course, she is living through a pandemic.
"Will my Right Hon. Friend join me in wishing her a belated Happy Birthday?
"Will he pay tribute to the care workers who are taking care of her, not just in Fountains Care Home, but across my constituency, and across the rest of the country, who go over and above to protect the most vulnerable in our society?"
The Prime Minister took the opportunity to reinforce Saqib's message:
"Can I thank him very much and say, I want to thank all the staff at Fountains Care Home and everything that they have been doing to look after people throughout the pandemic.
"But in particular, I want to join my Hon. Friend in wishing the centenarian, Edna, a very, very Happy 100th Birthday."
