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.

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.

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.

On Armistice Day we pay respects to our armed forces and remember those who have fallen. We will remember them #armisticeday #LestWeForget

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

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.
