Talked with @BorisJohnson. Told about the situation on the front. Received confirmation of a new enhanced defense support package for 🇺🇦. Raised the issue of intensifying work on security guarantees. Jointly with 🇬🇧 we’re looking for ways to avoid the food crisis & unblock ports.

I will be backing the PM tonight. He has always got the big calls right- Furlough, giving us the lowest unemployment since 70’s;Vaccines, releasing us from Covid sooner than other nations;Strongest leadership against Russian aggression;& coordinated support through energy crisis

As we all take the time to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 Jubilee, please spare a thought for A’Level and GCSE students who are studying for exams next week.

Here is our Platinum Pudding. The Queen Elizabeth ll Jubilee Trifle! Took quite a while to make but worth every hour!

Privilege to spend time with my friend and colleague, Yehor Cherniev - an MP from Ukraine. He led the Ukraine delegation at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.

His stand against Russian brutality is humbling. The UK’s role in leading the support to Ukraine was acknowledged widely.

Hate to be all earnest, but journalists and MPs saying the PM has watered the ministerial code down need to correct themselves - the expectation of resignation if ministers mislead parliament is clearly still there. He “hasn’t changed the rules mid-game”…

Llantwit AFC deserve answers 🚨⚽️

I’ve written to the FAW to call on them to reconsider their decision to reject Llantwit from promotion following their remarkable season.

The FAW need a long term plan to support clubs for Tier 1 eligibility not to leave clubs in the cold

0️⃣2️⃣ days to go until polling day for #LocalElections2022

My tour of the UK brings me to Barry, where @AlunCairns and the local Conservative team are standard-bearers for the exciting Barry Marina project 👇

#VoteConservative to level up this Thursday 🗳

Lesson 7, and it’s a controversial one: Politicians are people too and sometimes do the right thing just because it IS the right thing. Thank you for your generous support ⁦@AlunCairns⁩ , ⁦@AJRichardsonMP⁩, ⁦@sajidjavid⁩ and others. ⁦@PancreaticCanUK⁩

Thank you to @AlunCairns for his support on the #DownSyndromeBill which yesterday received Royal Assent to become the #DownSyndromeAct. As a result, those with #DownSyndrome in this country will now get better access to the services they need. @NDSPolicyGroup

Dr Liam Fox MP @LiamFox

Delighted that @AlunCairns is supporting the #DownSyndromeBill which has its Second Reading in the @HouseofCommons on Friday. This Bill is a world first. @NDSPolicyGroup #DownSyndrome

Great to see @OliverDowden in #Barrybados supporting out local candidates. Excellent response to our plan for a Marina in Barry as part of our Levelling Up agenda.

To be sanctioned by Putins Russia is truly a badge of honour 🏅

How will I ever cope!

They’ve even banned former MP and friend Glyn Davies who hasn’t been an MP since 2019!

They must’ve used an old MP list! Yet more Russian incompetence!

Ten European Union member states sold €346m worth of military equipment to Moscow, evading sanctions imposed after the Kremlin’s annexation of Crimea 2014. Most came from France, Germany and Italy. Likely some of equipment being used against Ukraine.

These are serious matters & PM has said that people have the right to expect better. Huge challenges lie ahead.The 9min gathering in Cabinet Rm should not distract us from focussing on the risks we face from Putin’s actions.Ukraine must be our priority & the PMs continued focus.

Happy Retirement to Lee Selby 🥊🥇

The former World Champion from Barry had a utterly stellar career holding the title for three years from 2015-2018.

I welcomed him to Parliament a few years ago ahead of his world title fight.

Thank you Lee and enjoy retirement ✅🥊

Saddened to see the aftermath of the fire in Hargeisa with such destruction in the open market that is the economic heart of the city, affecting many small and family enterprises.

Your city will rise again and the UK will do what we can to support Somaliland’s rebuilding effort.

Diolch yn fawr i @AlunCairns am ddod i gwrdd a ein Llywydd @AledNfu a Dirprwy Lywydd @AbiReader heddiw yn Mro Morgannwg. A big thanks to @AlunCairns for meeting with our President @AledNfu and Deputy @AbiReader today in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Public Meeting in support of Ukraine 🇬🇧🇺🇦

I am holding a public meeting on Ukraine at 7pm at the Duke of Wellington, Cowbridge on Thursday 17 March 2022.

All Vale of Glamorgan residents are welcome. Please confirm your attendance by emailing

Had another conversation with 🇬🇧 PM @BorisJohnson. Discussed increasing sanctions pressure on Russia, further support for 🇺🇦 in fighting the aggressor, including defense assistance. Appreciate 🇬🇧 leadership in countering the crime Russia is committing on 🇺🇦 land. #StopRussia

We have a moral obligation to support Ukrainian refugees 🇬🇧🇺🇦

I am working with constituents to find them safe sanctuary in the UK via a safe passage.

We must play a big part in supporting refugees who are desperately fleeing from this terrible war.

The UK and EU are working together on sanctions and different measures are quicker to implement in some places than in others. On bank sanctions for instance we are leading the way. In other areas the EU is. The West is united - unlike the bit of Twitter still unhinged by Brexit

The Western response against Russia must be strong and united 🇺🇦🇬🇧

I called on the Prime Minister to continue his coordinating role to ensure the western response is united as one.

My question below 👇

I worked in Cabinet and Whips Office with @SteveBarclay He is hugely impressive and a great doer. Having known @Guto_Harri for 30 years, he is a first class comms professional and really understands the focus around levelling up. Great news all round.

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day where we remember the six million Jewish men, woman and children murdered during the Holocaust.

Please join me in marking this important day. @HolocaustUK #HMD2022

How did #Wales lose the @BritishvoltUK gigafactory project creating 3,000 jobs?

Some interesting insights from @sionbarry especially on non-funding concerns that Britishvolt were looking for the @WelshGovernment to resolve to progress the St Athan option

Big shout out to all Park Runners and organising volunteers returning to action today…at last! Thank you. @Barryparkrun @parkrunCymru

I am looking for someone to join my team in the Vale.

Job description below 👇

Interesting that Plaid and Lab get reported by @BBCWales on the extra funding for @S4C but the Conservative members who worked for it and raised Qs on floor of Commons do not get a mention!

🚨✅ Outdoor Restrictions Must End ⚽️🏉

I have written to the FM to ask what evidence the Welsh Govt are basing their inconsistent approach on.

Wales is an outlier in the UK - this must change!

📈 Bit rich of the First Minister to be criticising Boris Johnson when the stats show that Wales currently has the highest case rate in the UK and England has the lowest.

Hat tip to @statsjamie for this chart.

Went to watch some live rugby in 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 yesterday cause I can’t here in 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Happily spent my money in the English economy - all thanks to Mr Drakeford 👍🏼🤦🏼‍♂️

Parkrun has helped so many people improve their health across the UK. I can’t see how restricting outdoor exercise in this way is justified or proportionate.

From Monday, Welsh residents will be liable to a fine of £60 if they go to work in their office. They may, however, legally spend all day in the pub.
