Wind Turbine Plans.

I’m concerned about the proposed development of wind turbines between Talerddig and Llanerfyl, which will trigger a new national grid connection potentially with new pylons.

I will continue to work with @russ_george on this.

Welshpool Travel News 🚌

The new bus station in Welshpool is not yet officially in use.

While this is expected relatively soon, buses continue to use the existing routes and timetables currently so head to your usual spot for now if you're unsure.

Brilliant to have @craig4monty pop down to hear more about Make UK Modular, as well as pledge his support for National Manufacturing Day on 7th July!

Giving back to the community 👏

Local shops are a real hub in towns and villages in Montgomeryshire.

Congratulations to Llanidloes' Woosnam & Davies News for nomination for a national industry award for their community fundraising!

https://www.countytimes.co.uk/news/20200967.defibrillator-fundraising-llanidloes-newsagent-national-award/

NEW: It's a great honour to receive the support of Roy Noble who joins us in calling on the Welsh Government and NRW to stop mass tree-planting on prime agricultural land, while also urging them to curtail ‘juggernaut companies’ from doing the same⬇️ https://bit.ly/3NNPqsI

Great, tasty business development for Llanidloes! 🍫

It's superb when local businesses grow and invest in our local area.

I'm pleased that Coco Pzaz continues to be a quality local producer in Montgomeryshire's economy.

Many thanks to Craig Williams MP @craig4monty for giving such a good speech at the @ClwydS Conservatives summer social event last night near #Chirk @wrexham - a very enjoyable evening and great to catch up with everyone.

Also great to discuss all things Mid Wales tourism with Val Hawkins of @MWTCymru with @Taiwan_in_UK with Representative Kelly Wu-Chiao Hsieh in #Montgomeryshire

Beautiful day out with @LlanfairLine at the annual fundraising day with the ever impressive @WilliamJHague & Ffion at #Cyfronydd Hall

Highlight of today was visiting my old school - #Welshpool Church in Wales Primary School - career day and impressive questions! Glad to see so many budding MPs and new law ideas.

I'm afraid I struggle to see validity in criticism being thrown at ChX/HMT today - based on NIESR alternative to QE unwind https://www.ft.com/content/90025f48-858f-40c5-a011-3f285f05e775critique . Rather than protecting BoE independence, extending HMT's role beyond indemnifying QE losses wld undermine UK's macro framework🧵

Lining up for a busy day at @londonwinefair for @Welsh_Wine_Week if you are in London pop down and try our new wines 💥🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿💥

Train Travel Disruption - June 21st, 23rd and 25th 🛤

Significant cancellations are expected on our rail network later in the month because of the RMT's planned strike action.

If you are travelling on these days, extra journey planning would be wise.

Having listened to the PM at the 1922, I will continue to back @BorisJohnson & focus on growing the economy, tackling the cost of living & clearing the Covid backlogs. He got the big decisions right on vaccines, supporting people through the Covid crisis & tackling unemployment.

Last day of the #JubileeCelebrations - I’ve attended dozens of parties but that’s only a small sample of #Montgomeryshire celebrations - huge thanks to all the organisers and what a great weekend - many happy memories made. #GodSavetheQueen #PlatinumJubilee

Outstanding #PlatinumJubilee celebrations across #Montgomeryshire. A real warmth and love for our Royal Family and especially #HMQ 🇬🇧 #JubileeWeekend #GodSaveTheQueen

Welshpool Poetry Festival! June 11th, with lots on 👏

It's great when local groups and clubs put on fantastic events in our area. Poetry can be a brilliant way to express thoughts and views, and I'm sure WPF will be a superb event.

Welshpool Vets Supporting Others.

@VetlifeVBF helps veterinarians through the mental health challenges they can face. All of us who have owned pets know how supportive vets can be in tough times.

Great to see local fundraising for them.

A fantastic Newtown Festival!

Montgomeryshire is home to brilliant history, culture and stories of legendary people from the past like Pryce Pryce-Jones.

I'm pleased the festival to celebrate them in Newtown earlier this month went well.

https://www.countytimes.co.uk/news/20170151.visitors-flock-newtown-celebrate-legacy-powys-pioneers/

Success for Important Local Charities 👏

The amazing people at Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, DJP Foundation and Hope House Children's Hospice do heartwarming work.

I'm pleased that their fundraising evening raised so much to continue their efforts.

Nature-boosting funding!

Montgomeryshire is such a beautiful part of Mid Wales and we thrive on the nature that surrounds us.

If you agree with me and run a group locally, why not take a look at this funding which supports nature-boosting projects?

We are introducing a temporary, targeted Energy Profits Levy charged on profits of oil and gas companies at a rate of 25%.

We're also building in a new investment allowance that doubles the relief for the energy companies that invest their profits in the UK.

Today, I called-in the acquisition of Newport Wafer Fab by Nexperia, a subsidiary of a Chinese company.

There will now be a full assessment under the new National Security and Investment Act.

We welcome overseas investment, but it must not threaten Britain's national security.

Boris Johnson paid tribute to the emergency services for the response to Monday's crash during Prime Minister's Questions today

Thank you to ⁦@craig4monty⁩ who drew attention today to the recent incident in Llanfair Caereinion (in his constituency) and sending his best wishes to the those affected, the response of the school and emergency services inc ⁦@DyfedPowys⁩ and ⁦@WelshAmbulance⁩

It's been a fantastic weekend at @WelshConserv conference.

It's always great to catch up with superb Conservative colleagues, discuss policy to help our great nation thrive and how we can level up to deal with the challenges of the 2020s for Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Fantastic first day at @WelshConserv conference yesterday with @BorisJohnson, @russ_george and lots of others!

Looking forward to another cracking day today in Newtown. It's fantastic that our area is hosting this big event.

Fantastic to visit @hilltop_honey in Wales, a buzzing hive of activity that produces award winning honey.

Small local businesses like this drive growth and boost the economy across the UK, strengthen our Union and bring good quality, local jobs to our communities.
