There is much discussion in the media of what the bill does or does not say and what function it serves. What does seem to be lost is the fact that it is a vital foundation for the way the UK chooses to regulate its economy, writes @ShankerASingham

We have increased the fining powers of @sra_solicitors from a maximum £2,000 to £25,000 to clamp down on rule-breakers. They now have more power to take swifter action against the small minority of our profession who do not maintain the standards required. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/extra-powers-for-regulators-to-clamp-down-on-rule-breaking-solicitors?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=govuk-notifications-topic&utm_source=87c5a4d8-257e-41a0-b444-1687aaa981f7&utm_content=immediately

Today’s data shows the Crown Court backlog has fallen by over 2,000 cases since its peak last year.

We are making good progress, but I urge the @TheCriminalBar to accept our offer of a generous pay increase and return to delivering swifter justice for victims.

Today, a further 10 Crown Courts will introduce a special measure which allows victims of rape to pre-record their evidence at trial.

This builds on progress we’ve made in providing support for victims of rape and driving up convictions.

✅We're getting on with the job of protecting the public and ensuring the most dangerous offenders spend longer behind bars.

🥀Laws opposed by Labour & the Lib Dems.

Lissie Harper has led a brave and inspiring campaign to bring in life sentences for those who kill emergency workers who are doing their duty, in memory of her husband Andrew.

It was a privilege to welcome her in Parliament today as Harper’s Law comes into force.

The law must protect the vulnerable & no one is more vulnerable than a young child.

Tony's Law will mean those who hurt children now face longer in prison.

I pay tribute to Tony and his adoptive parents, Paula and Mark. This is a victory for them & all victims.

#TonysLaw

Tony and I on @BBCBreakfast this morning as #TonysLaw comes finally into force on Tues

Not many 7 yr olds can say they are a #lawmaker

Big thanks to you, @TomTugendhat @DominicRaab for all the support

Educating girls improves lives and transforms societies.

That is why we are committed to getting girls across the Commonwealth back into education and campaign to give every girl 12 years of quality education.

On #ArmedForcesDay, people across the UK are joining together to recognise all those who are serving and have served our nation.

Whether at home or overseas we say thank you for your courage, service, and sacrifice.

At the end of Children’s Hospice Week, I pay tribute to the brilliant care workers providing palliative care and comfort to sick children & families locally & across the country. In April, I had the honour of presenting a cheque for £29k to @SSChospices from my charity skydive.

Great to join Richard Storey & Douglas Waddell at @hp_hotels Woodlands Park Hotel to present a cheque for £20,000 to the @decappeal Ukraine Appeal. £7,000 was raised through celebrations over the Jubilee weekend. Congratulations to everyone involved!

♻️Great to stop by Elmbridge Eco Hub this morning and meet founder Michael Tumilty. Run by Mick & volunteers, the eco hub is open to the community 7 days a week as a base to help in the community garden, or collect food or books that would otherwise go to waste.

It may not be the main theme for the day, but anyway here is my @Telegraph column on why it does matter if the country is subject to foreign courts, and why @trussliz
and @DominicRaab are doing a good job in getting to grips with the consequences.

Our new Bill of Rights will reinforce quintessentially UK-wide rights, like freedom of speech, and restore a healthy dose of common sense to the justice system.

These reforms will make us freer and help keep our streets safer. Watch my statement to Parliament ⤵

Larkin and Owen are two of our finest poets. Removing their work from the curriculum is cultural vandalism.

Their work must be passed on to future generations - as it was to me. I will be speaking to the exam board to make this clear.

Good to speak with @ChrisMasonBBC about our new Bill of Rights. It is a vital reform to enable us to strengthen free speech, deport more foreign national offenders, prevent the early release of dangerous criminals & properly contain terrorists in prisons. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-61886224

Our Bill of Rights will ensure Parliament has the last word on the law of the land.

Glad to have the support of eminent barristers like Edward Faulks.

Today we publish our modern Bill of Rights.

I agree with Jonathan Fisher QC that now is the time to strengthen our fundamental liberties like freedom of speech and the right to trial by jury.

Interesting op-ed in @TimesRedbox.

We're continuing to appeal for information after a PCSO was stabbed on Old Church Path in Esher yesterday afternoon. In particular, we’d like to speak to anyone who has video footage of the below and surrounding area between 2pm and 3.15pm yesterday. (1/3)

Our new Bill of Rights will replace Labour’s Human Rights Act to strengthen free speech, deport more foreign offenders, & prevent early release of dangerous prisoners. It will make us freer and our streets safer.

Read my @TheSun article ⤵ https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/18961973/european-human-rights-dominic-raab/

Horrified to hear about the stabbing of a @SurreyPolice PCSO in Esher. I'm relieved to hear that the officer is now home and wish them a full & swift recovery. Surrey Police are appealing for witnesses - please come forward if you have any information.👇 https://www.surrey.police.uk/news/surrey/news/2022/06/continued-appeal-for-witnesses-after-pcso-stabbed-in-esher/

🇬🇧 Our new UK Bill of Rights will better protect freedom of speech and end bogus human rights claims that waste court time and taxpayers money 👇

✅ Deal done

🔬 Moderna's Research Centre means world-leading vaccines are researched and manufactured here in the UK - turning jabs into jobs.

Our modern Bill of Rights will strengthen the UK tradition of freedom of speech, and better protect the public from dangerous criminals.

We are restoring a health dose of common sense into the justice system. ⤵

These rail strikes are unnecessary, irresponsible and counter-productive. Labour have actively encouraged the inconvenience commuters are suffering this morning … while the spineless Lib Dems have sat on the fence, rather than stand up for the public.

Travel misery begins for Surrey commuters https://www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/surrey-news/surrey-train-strikes-live-updates-24275172

Thanks to Doug Perkins from EBC for organising and @Keltbraygroup Esher for hosting the Elmbridge Business Leaders Meeting today. Valuable meeting ranging from local recovery from Covid, promoting T-Levels and apprenticeships, to supporting the switch to EVs locally.

In summary, why do we need to reform our railways?:

🚄Deliver better value for money for taxpayers
🚄We need to adapt to passengers' new train travel habits
🚄Deliver a modern, simpler & fairer transport network for passengers & freight customers

Vulnerable patients will miss appointments.

Doctors and nurses won’t be able to get to work.

It’s time @wesstreeting put patients first, stands up for the NHS and condemns the unjustified rail strikes.

We are increasing support for rape victims at three Crown Courts. These pilots will utilise new video technology, specialist trauma training and Independent Sexual Violence Advisors to better support victims and jail more rapists.

Hear more @skynews below

Rape convictions rose 67% in 2021.

But we’re restless to go further. So we’re piloting new specialist support for rape and serious violence cases at 3 courts to better care for victims, tackle the backlog and increase throughput.

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-pilots-to-boost-support-for-rape-victims-in-court

The number of people waiting more than two years for NHS treatment in England has dropped by two-thirds since February 📉

We're working with @NHSEngland to tackle the Covid backlogs so more patients can be seen quicker & access life-saving care.

🥀 Keir Starmer's own MPs back the week of rail chaos - with no concerns for the commutes 𝙘𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙙, operations 𝙙𝙚𝙡𝙖𝙮𝙚𝙙 and businesses 𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙.

5️⃣ days to go - we must #StopLaboursStrikes: http://action.conservatives.com/survey/stop-the-strikes

We’re boosting funding for victims to £192m by 2025 to ensure victims get the help they need.

I visited @SRASAC_team in Sheffield this week to see the vital support given to rape victims to help them rebuild their lives.

Very disappointed at the chaos these rail strikes - backed by Labour - are going to cause my constituents. Lib Dems notably failed to stand up for our commuters. This is no time to sit on the fence.

Dinner with @RishiSunak and @DominicRaab taking about young people challenges with cost of living and accelerating their futures

Growing up with no opportunities, poor and underprivileged I am doing my part to make opportunities for young people

Thanks Rishi & Dom for your time
