I'm around all day at the Boston Spa gala.

Come along to St John's School any time until 4:30pm for a chat with your local MP.

It's been a fantastic weekend celebrating at events across Elmet & Rothwell.
Thank you to everyone that came out to make Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee such a memorable occasion!

During Monday’s plenary of the #NATOPAVilnius Spring Session, the Assembly adopted 2 resolutions by #NATOPA President @GerryConnolly and @MichalSzczerba, #UNIC co-chair calling for further support for 🇺🇦 and long-term #NATO adaptation to counter 🇷🇺's threat. Declarations 👇

Mr Shelbrooke, MP for Elmet and Rothwell, has in the past few weeks described what went on in Downing Street as "indefensible".

But he says the PM is leading global response & the instability of a leadership contest "would be a gift to Putin and his brutal invasion in Europe"

NEW: Quite a statement from Tory MP @AlecShelbrooke head of UK delegation to Nato assembly, who says it's not the time to change PM because of the real prospect of naval conflict with Russia & "high risk of death to British service personnel"

#5YearsAsOne

This week I’ve been leading the Defence & Security Committee of @natopapress in Latvia for talks on our joint key security challenges impacting Allied defence and deterrence along NATO’s eastern flank. 🇱🇻 🇬🇧

#NATOPA Defence & Security Committee and the Sub-Committee on Future Security & Defence Capabilities 4-Day visit to 🇱🇻 & 🇪🇪 kicked off today in #Riga where parliamentarians discussed the key new security challenges impacting Allied defence and deterrence along the #EasternFlank.

One Queen's Speech. 38 Bills. All delivering on the British people's priorities:

✅ Growing the economy to tackle the cost of living
👮‍♀️ Backing our police to make streets safer
⚡️ Building an affordable, secure energy supply

#StateOpening

Interesting discussion @natopapress in Riga with Artis Pabriks Latvian Deputy Prime Minister & Defence Minister.⁦@Stuart4WolvesSW⁩ ⁦@AlecShelbrooke⁩

As a Councillor I’ve pushed for further investment in & support for our local high streets. I’ve secured funding for our ward including further local delegates funding.
Re-elect me on Thursday so we can keep delivering these improvements for our community. #LocalElections2022

🚧 BORDERS BILL IS NOW LAW 🚧

Our Borders Bill makes it easier to remove dangerous foreign criminals, introduces an Australian style, points-based immigration system, and brings in harsher punishments for people-smugglers.

🚨 POLICING ACT NOW LAW 🚨

Conservatives have been getting on with the job – in the last 48 hours alone, we’ve brought 19 more crucial acts into law.

🇬🇧 We stand alongside our partners in promoting peace and security across Europe and deterring Russian aggression.

That’s why 8,000 British troops will deploy in planned exercises across Europe this summer with our NATO allies.

#WeStandWithUkraine

The Health & Care Bill has received Royal Assent - putting health and care services in the strongest position to tackle the Covid backlog and rebuild following the pandemic.

These measures have broad support and are an important milestone in our plans to recover and reform.

🇷🇺’s war in 🇺🇦 & future defence capabilities were at the heart of the #NATOPA Defence & Security Committee’s visit to the 🇺🇸. Allied parliamentarians also reviewed military technological innovations aimed to support Allies in current & future challenges 👉https://bit.ly/3KBR66e

#NATOPA Defence & Security Committee continues discussions in 🇺🇸 on 🇷🇺's war in 🇺🇦&other challenges to Allied security. Chair @AlecShelbrooke:"Putin's brutal war has demanded a strong response from Allies. In addressing it, we have to relearn some lessons from the Cold War"

President @GerryConnolly to members of #NATOPA Defence & Security Committee visiting Washington, DC today: "If we needed to be reminded of the rationale for the Alliance, we are witnessing it every day in #Ukraine: not just to deter 🇷🇺 aggression but to assert democratic values"

#NATOPA President @GerryConnolly & former President @RepMikeTurner welcomed members of the Defence & Security Committee led by @AlecShelbrooke to the US Congress this morning to discuss #NATO Allies' response to #Russia's war & solidarity with #Ukraine
