In October 2015, Goodman attracted criticism from fellow MPs over a tweet mentioning Jeremy Hunt's wife. Hunt had mentioned his wife in a speech on Asian economies' work culture, and Goodman's tweet asked: "If China is so great, why did Jeremy Hunt's wife come to England?". The Labour Party issued a statement saying that Goodman's tweet "did not represent its views" and Labour's Shadow Leader of the House of Lords Lady Smith said Goodman's tweet was "absolutely bizarre". Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said it was a "terrible tweet" and called for Goodman to apologise. She later deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

Goodman argued that she was carrying out Parliamentary business when using the cottage and thus her claim was accepted, and the claim for the hotel stay – which was rejected – was a mistake.
