๐Ÿ›๏ธ This weekend is #UKIndieDay and it's so important to get out and support our local independent businesses across Milton Keynes

Last year I launched #BounceBackMK to promote businesses after lockdown and it's more important than ever to #ShopLocal ๐Ÿ’™

A nice day (and an early start!) for a @BucksCouncil by-election polling day. Best of luck to our excellent @Conservatives candidate David Hughes in the #Bernwood ward today.

๐Ÿ’ง Great to join @CanalRiverTrust to celebrate their tenth anniversary.

๐ŸŒณ We know how important outdoor spaces are to mental health so I'm pleased to be supporting their work to provide access to the outdoors to those who need it most.

#LifesBetterByWater

Measures of the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act come into force today.

It will:
Keep our emergency workers safe ๐Ÿš”
Give police more powers to make our streets safer ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™€๏ธ
And protect women and girls ๐Ÿ‘ญ

We must protect rural communities from reckless over-expansion

Too often it feels planning is something the council enforces on residents, giving them no say in their community

Housing must always be appropriate, affordable, sustainable, & proportionate

The NHS has reduced 2-year waits by 2/3s since January thanks to our plan to bust the Covid backlogs. ๐Ÿ“‰

As part of this I announced a new 'right to choose'. The longest waiters must be offered an alternative provider where they can be seen more quickly.

Over 113,000 Hong Kong nationals have been granted visas through the new British Nationals (Overseas) route so far, as we honour our historicโ€ฏ commitment to the people of HK.

#WorldRefugeeDay

Last year, we committed to taking up to 20,000 people through the Afghanistan Citizens Resettlement Scheme. We are on track to exceed our ambition to resettle 5,000 in the first year.

#WorldRefugeeDay

This has included:

Our Syrian Resettlement Scheme, which provided protection to 20,000 people fleeing the war, so that they could rebuild their lives here in the UK.

#WorldRefugeeDay

We will continue to build on our work so far โ€“ from Syria to Ukraine โ€“ to help those in genuine need of resettlement to come here safely & legally.

Our #NewPlanForImmigration will create a fairer system that can better support those in genuine need of refuge.
