I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Lord Trimble earlier today. He was a giant of British and international politics and will be long remembered for his intellect, personal bravery and fierce determination to change politics for the better.

Cathy Brokenshire and Fiona Castle spoke to @BBCBreakfast about how #lungcancer devastated both their lives and why it can't go on any more. We #needtoscreen for lung cancer. We need to save more lives.

This has been an excellent debate this afternoon - quite a contrast to the rest of the week - and a fitting remembrance of our dear friend Sir David says Dame Eleanor Laing

And that’s a wrap - just myself and @DavidRutley bringing the curtain down on this session of Parliament before returning in September. We discussed no fault benefit debts, thanks to @CPAGUK’s early warning system,

Many thanks to @eleanor4epping for overseeing the two Davids!

🗣️I am going to be speaking in the Sir David Amess Adjournment debate today. Sir David was such an enthusiastic participant in the debates and lobbied extremely hard for issues in the constituency. I hope to uphold his legacy, and continue to raise issues for Southend West💙

As the temperature starts to drop, the threat of wildfires has not gone away. The ground remains exceptionally dry

It was an honour today to welcome Councillor Val Duschinsky, Dr Matthew Offord (MP for Hendon) and Tas Boga (school governor) for the official opening of our outdoor gym. The children are extremely grateful for the grant the school received from @BarnetCouncil

WATCH: @CFoI Officer @Offord4Hendon highlights the "difficult and dangerous scenario" that we are in due to the "infamous" sunset provisions within the 2015 JCPOA

Watch: Foreign Office Minister @JamesCleverly underlines UK Government's concern that Iran's behaviour is "unacceptable" in a "whole number of areas" in response to CFI Officer @Offord4Hendon q on Tehran's human rights violations and support for terrorism.

Very productive meeting of the APPG on Sri Lanka today. Thank you to HE @SarojaSirisena for attending - we look forward to strengthening Anglo-Sri Lankan relations 🇬🇧🇱🇰

Whether you are celebrating Easter, Passover or Ramadan, I would like to wish all of my constituents a happy and peaceful holiday weekend.

Puthandu Vazthukal to all Tamils and a happy Aluth Avurudda to all Sinhalese people.

New Year marks a new lease of life as we recognise the outstanding contribution of these communities in the UK and around the world.

I would like to wish a very Happy #Nowruz  to all my constituents celebrating.

I was delighted to once again be able to host the annual celebration of Persian New Year in Parliament and be joined by constituents and members of the Anglo-Iranian community.

Last week we were delighted to welcome MP Dr Matthew Offord to our diagnostic hub at Brent Cross where he was shown around the facility, met our chief executive @Kupermar and staff running the hub, and even got to try out some of the latest testing equipment we use there.

Also confirmed:

• Urgent question from @Offord4Hendon: "To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will make a statement on the IOPC report on Metropolitan Police officers' conduct at Charing Cross police station."

Today, #HolocaustMemorialDay, we remember all the victims of the Holocaust and vow we will never let it happen again.

We will continue to fight antisemitism, hatred and prejudice whenever and wherever they occur.

.@Offord4Hendon today highlights that "Hamas publicly condemns peace negotiations and has committed itself to Israel’s destruction".

"Until Hamas disarms, Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with a terror group that calls for its destruction"

"My constituents face this daily," says @Offord4Hendon as he recounts the convictions of Feras Al Jayoosi under the Terrorism Act 2000, and Tahra Ahmed for inciting racial hatred after claiming the Grenfell Tower fire was a “Jewish sacrifice”.

A ‘chemical cocktail’ of sewage, slurry and plastic polluting English rivers is putting public health and nature at risk.

Unfortunately, at the weekend I tested positive for COVID-19. I am recovering well at home thanks to my double vaccinations.

Regrettably this means that I was unable to vote and was unable to secure a proxy for the important votes on the Environment Bill this evening.

Today @PutneyFleur introduced a Bill to prohibit the manufacture and sale of wet wipes containing plastic.

As an environmentalist and frequent user of our waterways and seas, I'm proud to be supporting this Bill.

A pleasure to visit St Matthias @ChurchColindale today to celebrate the anniversary of the Dedication of the Parish Church and blessing of the new Shrine of Saint Mellitus.

Thank you to Tom, Managing Director of @TLRailUK, for updates on timetables and step-free access at Mill Hill Broadway station. I understand plans are being finalised and I look forward to receiving a further update at the end of the year.

I also found this picture of me with David and @Offord4Hendon back in 2019 in Tirana. David was always a joy to be with and so many of us will miss him.

I am deeply shocked and so very sad at the death of my friend and colleague David Amess.

Sir David was a kind man, a hardworking constituency MP and exemplary parliamentarian.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family. He will be sorely missed.

Great to see vice chairs @thisischerilyn, @Offord4Hendon scrutinizing water CEOs on their sewage pollution record and future plans.
Welcome support for #NatureBasedSolutions🌳🌊 but disappointing not to hear CEOs commit to plough profits into ending river pollution
@CommonsEAC

Disappointed to be unable to attend today’s leaseholder rally in Westminster. However, I remain committed to fighting to protect leaseholders from historic fire safety costs. #LeaseholdersTogether

Also a huge thank you to teachers and school staff who have worked incredibly hard throughout this challenging academic year.

Although there are measures in the #BuildingSafetyBill that are to be welcomed, there is a great deal more required and I will be looking for amendments that better protect leaseholders.
