Fuel pricesโ›ฝ๏ธ

Iโ€™ve asked the @CMAgovUK to conduct an urgent review of the retail fuel market, as well as a longer-term investigation under the Enterprise Act.

Fuel prices are always quick to go up but slow to come down - letโ€™s see why.

Thank you to local MP @drcarolinej for an engaging and informative Q&A with local Parish Councillors in Hough Division. A wide range of topics were discussed including local transport, broadband and housing! #Lincolnshire

Pleased that colleagues confirmed their confidence in the Prime Minister in yesterdayโ€™s vote.

Now we must all focus on the issues that are important to the public.

And look at what those against him are sayingโ€ฆ

- Con MP @Tobias_Ellwood said we should rejoin the EU single market

- Con MP @Jesse_Norman said we should scrap the Rwanda policy for illegal immigration

- Lord @Andrew_Adonis said โ€œIf Boris goes, Brexit goesโ€

#BackBoris

Burglars who break into peopleโ€™s homes while they are sleeping will now receive longer jail sentences.
Judges and magistrates have been told that they should treat night-time burglary as an โ€œaggravatingโ€ factor that merits a longer prison term. And I agree.

So proud of my friend Kris Hammond

A big thank you to @Gibbo4Darlo for being guest speaker at our SNHCA Spring Dinner! It was a great return to local fundraising since the pandemic & interesting to hear about the red wall campaign in 2019 and life as a new MP during Covid

Important article from David Frost.

The State can not be the solution to all challenges.

Britain is being overwhelmed by a rising tide of statism, entitlement and dependency https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/04/29/britain-overwhelmed-rising-tide-statism-entitlement-dependency/

Today we have endorsed every single one of the ten strategic recommendations set out in the fan-led review of football.

That means major reform of football in England recommended by fans, for fans.

New Labour's obsession with targets and quotas pushed people into courses that didnโ€™t get them into graduate jobs. One size fits all token targets might get people in the door but they donโ€™t help people to get on in life which is my relentless focus.

"The people of the Falkland Islands...are few in number but they have the right to live in peace, to choose their own way of life and to determine their own allegiance." โ€“ Margaret Thatcher, 1982.

There comes an empathy like no other living with a disability and I was delighted to speak with @drcarolinej at Spring Conference about @Ability_2_Win Itโ€™s so important to encourage people of all walks of life to be involved in politics to help shape inclusive policies

Lovely to meet Conservative Vice Chair @drcarolinej over the weekend and delighted to support @Ability_2_Win - they are working hard to improve representation of those with disabilities at all levels of public life.

Great results - day in day out, doors are going in across the land in relentless pursuit of these villains.

Happy #InternationalWomensDay to the #ExtraordinaryWomen everywhere.

This government is supporting women and levelling up opportunity across the whole United Kingdom.

Nurses care for us, are there in our hour of need, and heroically saved lives throughout the pandemic.

Itโ€™s wonderful to see that more than 27,000 nurses have joined our NHS since September 2019, and we are well on track to deliver our commitment of 50,000 more nurses by 2024.

We will stop at nothing to remove those with no right legal right to be in the UK, including foreign criminals.

Since 2019, we've so far returned 9,286 foreign national offenders โ€” action to keep the public safe.

Very disappointed to see reports that @asda have decided they will no longer be backing British Farmers - they are reported to be withdrawing their commitment to only stock British Beef.

We've announced new laws to crackdown on illegal hare coursing that blights rural communities:

Ok so I've seen a few people including @agricontract post this today. @marksandspencer claiming going meat free one day a week is the equivalent to not driving your car for a month. Totaly absurd, to counter this let's do some maths! ๐Ÿงต (1/6)

However, I would urge everyone to continue to act cautiously given the rising number of Omicron cases.

Most importantly I urge everyone to get their first, second or booster jab without delay to protect yourselves and your loved ones. 2/2

Huge thanks to all who attended this morning's APPG for Children Who Need Palliative Care AGM co-chaired by @drcarolinej & @Siobhain_Mc. At the meeting MPs & Peers heard about the APPG's new report on the vital importance of 24/7 care for seriously ill children.

Today, nine Insulate Britain activists have been jailed for their part in the protests on the M25.
