Useful meeting with @GuyOpperman & @AndrewBowie_MP tonight to discuss the #StormArwen response reports from @beisgovuk & @ofgem.

Storm Arwen was a huge storm in Nov. 2021 and key lessons are:
1. More resilient ⚡️ networks
2. Better comms in the aftermath
3. Faster compensation

ICYMI: It was great to host the Chancellor last week and hear him reaffirm his, and the Government's, commitment to the Oil & Gas industry in the North East.

Today I am back on the Committee taking evidence for the Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill.

On Tuesday we heard that Scottish farmers are at risk of being left behind if the SNP don't work with us on developing this Technology. So much research going on in Scotland!

POLL: Should a referendum on Scottish independence be held in October 2023 (The Scottish Government's proposed timetable):

Should: 40%
Should Not: 53%

The Voice of the Scottish Conservatives😏...thanks David...I think!

Referendum? No, let's work together on the issues that really matter to the Scottish people.

On a historic day as Sweden proceeds in its journey to full NATO membership, it was brilliant to have my great friend, and a great friend of the UK, Swedish Ambassador Mikaela Granit in @HouseofCommons! 🇬🇧🇸🇪

Q. What will unionists do if the Supreme Court greenlights #indyref2 ?

Tory MP @AndrewBowie_MP says "we don't have to go down that rabbit hole", adding that the Conservatives are focused on everyday issues where the SNP have taken their eye off the ball.

BREAKING: The leaders of Turkey, Sweden & Finland have just signed a memorandum for the two Nordic states to join NATO, removing a Turkish block to the accession process, a source said.
“It’s a three-way agreement on accession,” the source said. @jensstoltenberg to make statement

Nicola and the SNP know there is no legal basis for a referendum and they know the people of Scotland don't want one.

They need to get back to the day job, and start delivering for Scotland.

It's time Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP focussed on the priorities of the Scottish people, and not on sowing more division and uncertainty.

Yesterday I voted for the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill.

🇬🇧 It's about who we are. The idea all are equal in the United Kingdom. The right to call ourself British.

💪Those of us that are in politics to ensure those rights endure know this. We fight for it every day.

🤔 Why is UK law extended to Scotland?
🧐 Cause Scotland voted to remain in the UK!
🤔 It's pretty simple. You'd think 8 years on from the referendum they might have realised...

💬 Live: My speech to @HouseofCommons on the Second Reading of the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1zqKVBXywrmKB

The NI Protocol is causing problems for people, businesses & society across Northern Ireland.

We have a solution to fix these problems & protect the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement: http://gov.uk/protocol-bill

NI Protocol Bill returns for 2nd reading today.

It will fix problems the Protocol has created in Northern Ireland & uphold the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement. Our preference remains a negotiated outcome, but EU continues to rule out change to Protocol👇

"I'm delighted to confirm that the Commonwealth Her Majesty has served with such devotion, will grow from 54 to 56 nations, as we welcome the Togolese and Gabonese Republics into our family today."

It was great to celebrate 40 years of Elrick School yesterday!

Well done to all involved in bringing a bit of the 80s to Westhill! 🕺🥳

It's Armed Forces Day!

Through thick and thin, our Armed Forces perform incredible tasks to support us everyday.

Join the nation in saying thank you for all they do.

I love America, its people, cultures and history. It is our greatest ally. But it is not here. We often lazily, conflate UK and US politics. Fact is what happens there does not automatically follow here. And I try to stear clear of commenting on its domestic politics. 1/3

Ending the day at Lyne of Skene talking to local residents about the state of the roads.

Adoption and maintenance of roads a major issue.

So much fun to join in celebrating 40 years of @ElrickSchool this afternoon!
Well done all the parents, teachers and of course, pupils involved in going back to the 80s in Westhill today! 🕺🥳

🏔 No better way to start end to the week...meetings at Glenshee Ski Centre.
😍 And not a bad place for a sandwich. #WestAberdeenshireandKincardine #Friday

Brilliant that the Chancellor @rishisunak accepted my invitation to come to Aberdeenshire and speak to the Oil and Gas Industry today!

Only the @Conservatives are standing up for our region, supporting jobs and investing in the future.

The energy sector is vital for the economy through the jobs it supports, the energy security it provides and for our transition to net zero.

It was great to speak with energy companies in Aberdeen about the future of the industry, including investment in North Sea oil & gas.

A great pleasure to welcome Chancellor @RishiSunak to West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine today!
A great friend to Scotland and the North East. 👍🇬🇧

North East Scotland MPs @AndrewBowie_MP & @david_duguid came to see us in Aberdeenshire, where our build has reached 23k+ properties. That means 1 in 5 homes & businesses there can now order Full Fibre 🏘️👷🏻‍♀️👷🏻‍♂️💪

Find out if you can upgrade today 👉👉 https://openreach.com

Almost always? The cheek @ConorBurnsUK!😅

Glad he agrees with me that thanks to the Barnett formula this support will reach every corner of our United Kingdom.

Aberdeen Railway Station - usually the busiest station north of Edinburgh and Glasgow - today is eerily quiet. No trains are arriving or departing. Local business leaders have warned that strikes will impact the recovering economy and isolate communities outside central Scotland.

👥 People attempting to get to work from Laurencekirk, Stonehaven and Portlethen and across the whole North East Scotland are being let down by the Unions striking today.
🚉 No trains at all outside the central belt!
🔴🟡 But Labour and the SNP refuse to condemn these strikes.

My Interview in ⁦@politicshome⁩ this morning on Energy & Climate Change.

The job is “a combination of long term challenges and short term crunches”.

Not sure I am such “an atypical Minister in Boris Johnson’s Government” though… https://www.politicshome.com/thehouse/article/greg-hands-a-man-for-a-crisis

Scottish Secretary Alister Jack has told Westminster’s Scottish Affairs Committee that it’s disappointing the First Minister declined to appear before them. Says they should’ve invited her during the Jubilee weekend when she and her husband were “having a whale of a time”.
