Carbon capture tech could help create 50,000 British jobs this decade.

Today I met 20 companies to discuss how we can get money into the UK to kick-start this nascent industry.

The opportunities are huge - jobs, growth, industrial competitiveness and tech exports ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

(1/4) We need to do some mythbusting about the false claims that Government's quality proposals are behind Eng Lit course changes at @SheffieldHallam

This is fake news. The English courses at Hallam have outcome metrics well above the proposed minimums.

Congratulations to the top ten Apprenticeship Employers for 2022! Special mention for @BritishArmy in first place! These employers have done the most to provide quality #apprenticeship opportunities over the last 12 months. Let's give them a round of applause! #TopAppsEmployers

Minister @alexburghart wants to hear from training providers the reasons why apprentices don't complete their programmes & will launch "a new exit feedback tool for non-completing apprentices, to give a richer understanding of the reasons". Item 3 here:

Over the coming years, the UK will require a steady supply of critical minerals for a wide range of tech.

To protect our national security, it is vital we develop domestic supply chains and partner with like-minded allies.

Our upcoming Critical Minerals Strategy will say more.

Nus Ghani MP @Nus_Ghani

At @CommonsBEIS today, I asked @KwasiKwarteng about the governmentโ€™s plans for accessing critical minerals ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

(1/3) Humanities matter. As a history graduate myself, I know of their potential to open minds and transform lives.
The English courses at @SheffieldHallam have positive outcomes that are well above the OfS's proposed minimum thresholds.

We must end Putin's stranglehold on grain which drives up global food prices, deprives Ukraine of revenue and puts millions at risk of starvation.

We will work with partners to end Russia's grain blockade and with Ukraine to repair vital railways.

Now is not the time to give up on Ukraine, they need the support and resolve of the @G7 more than ever.

The UK will continue to back Ukraine every step of the way, because we know that their security is our security, and their freedom is our freedom.

Ukraine can win and it will win.

But they need our backing to do so. Now is not the time to give up on Ukraine.

The UK will continue to back Ukraine every step of the way.

As a teenager improving my grasp of the English language, Larkinโ€™s poems taught me so much about my new home.

We must not deny future students the chance to make a similarly powerful connection with a great British author, or miss out on the joy of knowing his work.

Today, I will table legislation that will give employers the freedom to recruit skilled, temporary staff to plug vital roles during strike action.

This new law will help protect the British public from future disruption caused by militant trade unions๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฟ
