On the day our PCSC Act came into force, a reminder of some of the key ways it toughens sentencing for serious crime 👇
@MyNottingham A library banning a woman writer with a history of writing about women's rights. How very progressive.
This afternoon it was fantastic to welcome MPs and Peers to our Summer Reception for a range of positive and engaging discussions around the future of British food and farming.
Thanks to @drcarolinej, MP for Sleaford and North Hykeham for sponsoring the event #BackBritishFarming
Degree apprenticeships offer a balance of work + learning.
I enjoy hearing from constituents doing degree apprenticeships. They tell me they graduate with a great degree, real world work experience, a job to go to + no debt.
Fantastic to see Gvmnt investment in more of them.
To help British businesses to flourish and grow, and help people to beat the cost of living crisis through high wage jobs. I am rocket-boosting Degree Apprenticeships with £8m extra funding - producing work ready grads that can earn while they learn.
I’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 - let’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
Thanks to @drcarolinej who accepted an invitation from the senior students at KSHS, @carresgrammar and St George’s and Ruskington today to discuss topical issues. Lots of discussion and an insight into political decision making
NHS to cut diversity and inclusion jobs as Sajid Javid declares war on 'waste and wokery' amid record spending
Pleased that colleagues confirmed their confidence in the Prime Minister in yesterday’s vote.
Now we must all focus on the issues that are important to the public.
And look at what those against him are saying…
- 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 “If Boris goes, Brexit goes”
This week let us rejoice in celebrating the love, devotion and leadership of Her Majesty The Queen.
Burglars who break into people’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 “aggravating” factor that merits a longer prison term. And I agree.
Most people will recognise it is necessary that when money is tight, the state should do its bit to become smaller and nimbler. We have an amazing civil service but it is totally unsustainable for it to be 23% larger than it was in 2016. (1/2) https://twitter.com/SkyNews/status/1525000896299548672
"We're getting back to the 2016 levels" says Jacob Rees-Mogg, speaking on plans to cut 90,000 civil service jobs - adding there were "good reasons" to take extra people on but "those reasons have passed".

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 didn’t get them into graduate jobs. One size fits all token targets might get people in the door but they don’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." – Margaret Thatcher, 1982.
40 years on, we will still defend that right. 🇬🇧🇫🇰
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 It’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.
It’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.
How the UK is supporting Ukraine.
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 — action to keep the public safe.
What the 🇬🇧UK-Serbia🇷🇸 returns deal I signed today will mean 👇🏽

"Sir Robin Murray, a professor at King’s College London, said that high-strength skunk causes about a third of the psychosis cases he sees at his practice.

Trial by jury is an important guardian of liberty & must not be undermined. However, the decision in the Colston statue case is causing confusion. 1/2
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.
This is the 𝙗𝙞𝙜𝙜𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙧𝙚𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙢 of our national security regime in 20 years.
From today, new powers will let us act to 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭 𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐬𝐡 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 in sensitive parts of our economy 🇬🇧
We've announced new laws to crackdown on illegal hare coursing that blights rural communities:
✅ Increased penalties
✅ Making offenders pay for police costs
✅ Barring offenders owning dogs
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! 🧵 (1/6)
True. @BorisJohnson inherited a worsening crime scene from Ken and with @kitmalthouse got it under control. @SadiqKhan is doing even worse than Ken. https://twitter.com/deGourlay/status/1477019448087396358
Only one of the last three Mayors of London has been competent. Which is tragic for our youth. Khan has the worst record by far.
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
We will continue to monitor the data carefully, but there will be no new restrictions introduced in England before the New Year. 1/2

Today, nine Insulate Britain activists have been jailed for their part in the protests on the M25.
We will not stand by while these reckless and selfish criminals disrupt the freedoms and livelihoods of hard-working people.
An exciting day for @Ability_2_Win at Number 10…watch this space! 😉
