Russia has been cutting off gas supply to parts of Europe.

Britain gets very little gas from Russia - and even those imports are down 75% since last year.

But we need to be prepared for any knock-on effects. Here are the steps I’m taking to bolster winter security of supply 👇🏾

The global challenges we face demand stronger R+D 🌍collaboration.

Great to see the Sustrans funded work by the Canals and Rivers Trust to improve the canal tow path between Leighton Buzzard and Linslade. A great place to relax or exercise and a Kingfisher was seen here recently.

Staying active is so important. That's why I'm pleased to announce that the £320m PE and sport premium will continue for another year, so that more schools like @floragardensw6 can offer their pupils enriching sporting opportunities ⚽🎾🏀🏈

Larkin and Owen are two of our finest poets. Removing their work from the curriculum is cultural vandalism.

Their work must be passed on to future generations - as it was to me. I will be speaking to the exam board to make this clear.

As many people know, I moved to this country aged 11, unable to speak a word of English.

Some of my first school experiences involved being called a ‘p*ki’ and even having my head dunked in a pond by bigger kids as entertainment.
 
It’s time to talk about bullying.

GAS DEAL🇬🇧🇳🇴

Britain’s Centrica has signed a major deal with Norway’s Equinor, boosting UK supply for the next 3 winters.

With ongoing uncertainty in Europe, securing extra supply is welcome as we maximise gas production in British waters and accelerate nuclear and renewables.

As we shift towards more electric vehicles it is important that new developments plan for that future. Let @letstalkcentral know your thoughts.

Great to approve a big boost in the Warm Home Discount just now in the Commons.

Will mean that payments totalling £474m (was £350m) will reach 2.8m households (instead of 2.2m) of the most fuel poor & vulnerable groups.

A big difference for this winter!

Protecting national security is our top priority.

As a condition for financial support through the new Nuclear Act, the Government reserves the right take a 'special share' in all future nuclear projects.
