My PMQ today on funding for the Eden Project North
Pleased to catch up with @unitedutilities CEO Steve Mogford in Parliament to hear about their work across their North West, including preservation of our award winning beaches in Morecambe!
I recently visited Carnforth Community Swimming Pool to hear about their exciting plans for the future. We have a fantastic facility in the Pool, please support it by using the facilities. General swim info can be found here: https://www.carnforthpool.org/
New hospital at the RLI confirmed by Minister as rumours of a joint Preston Lancaster hospital are complete nonsense. The RLI is not and has never been at threat of closure.
My opinion of the Prime Minister has not changed since I was speaking to @annabelvtiffin on Politics NW last week. I will be supporting the Prime Minister in this evenings vote.
What a fantastic record breaking day in Morecambe today. Morecambe Town Council have done the town proud organising such a wonderful event to celebrate the Queen.

The energy security strategy is brilliant for Morecambe and Lunesdale as it secures the build of a third nuclear power station in Heysham. I am pleased that @KwasiKwarteng has accepted my invitation to come and visit Heysham 1 & 2.

Good to see confirmation new nuclear is coming to Heysham 🙂
Today the UK is making a big call to reverse 30 years of drift and delay on nuclear.
To meet our new 24GW target, we're going to progress up to 8 more reactors this decade.
Large-scale nuclear is not a quick fix, but a vital investment in our country's energy independence.
Great to see we are investing in new nuclear again. Heysham is one of the 8 sites nationally earmarked for a new nuclear poster station.
The more cheap, clean power we generate at home, the less exposed we will be to eye-watering fossil fuel prices set by global markets we can’t control.
Today’s Energy Security Strategy sets out our plan for greater energy independence.

This evening I was joined at the Ukraine Embassy by my friend Alexander Temerko. Alexander is a Ukrainian-born British businessman who still has family living in Ukraine. I was devastated to hear stories of his family members loosing their lives in this needless war. 1/2
This evening I had the pleasure of meeting Ukraine Ambassador to the UK @VPrystaiko to be briefed on the current situation in Ukraine and to listen to the concerns of the Ukrainian people. We will continue to do all we can to help. 🇺🇦🇬🇧 #WeStandWithUkraine

Looking forward to my Westminster Hall Debate at 4pm on the campaign to bring the Great British Railway HQ to Carnforth
Tonight I will be presenting @civic_society petition on bringing the Great British railways HQ to Carnforth in the @HouseofCommons
My question to the Prime Minister @BorisJohnson during yesterday's Ukraine Statement:
Thank you @Greghands for your briefing this afternoon. Officers of @LancasterCC and @EnvAgencyNW are briefed and ready to act should any oil beach locally.
We’re in touch with local MPs & councils, as well as ENI UK Ltd - the company that owns & operates the pipeline
The Offshore Petroleum Regulator is working closely with the Maritime & Coastguard Agency and relevant local authorities to ensure ENI fulfils its legal obligations.
I am being kept regularly updated following a release of oil from a pipeline in the Irish Sea.
The pipeline was immediately shut off. Aerial surveillance has been undertaken + specialist teams have been mobilised along Lancashire's coast to respond if any oil beaches…
My question to @michaelgove today during the levelling up statement asking him to help me secure funding for the @edenproject North. Thank you for your support, now let’s make this happen!
Following planning approval today,I have a letter signed by 51 MP’s supporting the Eden Project in Morecambe. This strengthens the funding ask to government now planning has been achieved and has been sent to @BorisJohnson @RishiSunak and @michaelgove
It is a great day for Morecambe as planning has been approved for the @edenproject. I am delighted that we have reached another milestone in the project and look forward to working with @michaelgove to get the government funding for the project secured.

Absolutely devastated by the death of Sir David Amess. Sir David was a great friend and one of the kindest people you will ever meet. He was a fantastic parliamentarian and totally dedicated to his constituents. 1/2
Absolutley horrendous news, I am praying for Sir David.
BREAKING: Sir David Amess MP has been stabbed multiple times at his local constituency surgery at Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea.
It is believed he has been receiving treatment at the scene.
I am very upset to learn that my friend James Brokenshire has died. I was his PPS when he was Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and Communities and he was the best boss and friend a man could have. My thoughts are with Cathy and the children.
Great to get out to @RSPBLeightonM today to talk to @pow_rebecca & @davidmorrisml about priority conservation needs for UK seabirds & @Natures_Voice's role in policy & evidence development to ensure thriving seas & seabirds
