Liz's plans to save on the management and administration of public services will have plenty of options. The vast network of quangos and chief executives in everything from health to local government needs slimming down to focus on high quality delivery to the public.

Liz Truss: I do not believe that under 18s should be able to make irreversible decisions about their own bodies that they might come to regret later

Reoffending rates have fallen to record lows & 35% more offenders are in jobs after release compared to last year. Our efforts to rehabilitate prisoners are working.

It's why we're increasing investment to £200m a year to get more of them off drugs, off the streets & into work.

As Health Secretary, I was determined to protect vulnerable children from being failed by gender identity services at the Tavistock.

This is welcome news and absolutely the right decision based on the independent evidence gathered by Dr Hilary Cass. https://twitter.com/BBCNews/status/1552631469444571137

It has barely rained here in Somerset since March – perhaps the driest summer in my lifetime. And yet wherever there are beavers, there is coolness and water. We need beavers back through all of our landscapes, as fast as possible.

It was an honour to present my friend President @ZelenskyyUa with the Winston Churchill Leadership Award today.

Volodymyr’s courage, defiance and dignity – all Churchillian qualities – have moved the hearts of millions and stirred a global wave of solidarity.

I was pleased to meet with @CharlotteV in #Truro today so I could show her first hand our successful bus fare pilot in #Cornwall

Summer is back in Falmouth! Gyllyngvase Beach looked beautiful this morning in the sunshine. We were almost tempted to go in for a swim! #lovefalmouth #cornwall #gyllybeach #swisbest #bythesea #coastalliving #lovewhereyoulive #falmouth #ilovecornwall

Last week President @ZelenskyyUa and I agreed that wherever Eurovision 2023 is held, it must celebrate the country and people of Ukraine.

As we are now hosts, the UK will honour that pledge directly – and put on a fantastic contest on behalf of our Ukrainian friends.

It is World Whale and Dolphin Day 😀
Declared in 1986 by the @iwc_int International Whaling Commission (IWC), it put an end to the 200 years of the commercial hunting of whales. 😀

Under this climate-friendly Conservative Government:

✅ Renewables in 2010 were 7% of our electricity - now its 43%
✅ Europe’s largest offshore wind capacity.
✅ Energy efficient homes up from 14% to 46% since 2010
✅Nuclear power Renaissance.

More to come!

Unblocking Ukraine's ports is a vital step, but threats to food security remain as long as Putin’s war continues: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/foreign-secretary-stresses-the-need-for-full-implementation-of-important-deal-to-get-grain-out-of-ukraine

The UK is working to alleviate the food crisis, but Russia must end its disastrous war.

#FoodIsNotAWeapon

I welcome today’s announcement of the @UN-brokered deal to get grain out of Ukraine via the Black Sea and end Russia’s blockade.

UK support for @ZelenskyyUA and his people is unwavering, and we’ll continue to bolster Ukrainian defences as they repel Russian aggression.

To keep up with demand over the summer holidays, @EasternAirways have added a third rotation to their popular twice daily service! Fly direct between London Gatwick and Cornwall three times a day on Monday, Thursday and Friday.

🚬🚮 Bin your butts!

A staggering 27 billion cigarette butts are littered in the UK every year, allowing toxins to pollute our watercourses and countryside.

@CleanCornwall says butts are one of the most common types of litter their pickers find.

I'm proud to have delivered a new pioneering 🇬🇧🇺🇸 Data Access Agreement — the first bilateral agreement of its kind globally.

It will strengthen the UK’s ability to go after dangerous offenders, tackle heinous crimes like CSEA, intl' organised crime & national security threats.

Over 2 million more women are in work than in 2010 according to data from the @ONS

That's 2 million more women making a difference to the economy and the lives of everyone in the country

Veteran’s Minister in the Cabinet is a significant moment of change which now leaves little excuse for the U.K. not becoming the best place in the world to be a veteran. Huge progress has been made, but I’m aware that is not felt by everyone. My letter to veterans and families 👇

🌡In 2018 our predecessor Committee looked into heatwaves, and recommended that more needs to be done to ensure greater green spaces to reduce the ‘urban heat island’ effect we see in our cities. 🌆
