The @MayorofLondon is Chair of @TfL. He is in charge of our #transport network. His plans to slash our #bus network, including critical hospital routes like the 211 and 14 will cause immense disruption and difficulties for so many people. 1/2

Useful meeting with @GuyOpperman & @AndrewBowie_MP tonight to discuss the #StormArwen response reports from @beisgovuk & @ofgem.

Storm Arwen was a huge storm in Nov. 2021 and key lessons are:
1. More resilient ⚡️ networks
2. Better comms in the aftermath
3. Faster compensation

Standard - “Almost 600 TfL fat cats on £100,000 a year”

“£1.6m of bonuses to 37 serving or departed executives were quietly approved the day after the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday”

Just days after Khan announced the bus cuts!

A pleasure to welcome Prime Minister @reinerhaseloff of Sachsen-Anhalt to @beisgovuk today.

Great to discuss renewable energy, Hydrogen, decarbonisation, economic and trade cooperation with a region I know well.

Vielen Dank für den Besuch!

Driving the hydrogen future forward – this hydrogen electric truck from @TevvaTrucks will be the first of its kind to be mass produced in the UK 🇬🇧.

Hydrogen is key to decarbonising the transport sector & reducing need for expensive fossil fuels 🚛

Great to see the historic indicator boards back in action at Earl’s Court station.

I have been a daily commuter through here - like thousands of my constituents- since 1990.

This busy Pimlico Road bus stop, used by the ⁦@RHChelsea⁩ Pensioners, has 4 routes at the moment: 11, N11, 170 and 211.

Under Khan’s bus 🚌 cuts ✂️ plan, it will have just ONE route. The 170, and Khan has recently reduced that service too.

🎉 Almost time to enjoy the Kensington and Chelsea Festival 2022!

🗓 The Festival starts Friday 1 July and runs until Wednesday 31 August.

A host of activities on offer and a great deal of fun!

Energy is another way we can help Ukraine 🇺🇦.

As a panellist at @ConGeostrategy meeting on Energy, Ukraine and Europe tonight, I outlined U.K. 🇬🇧 support for Ukraine:

✅850 free generators
✅advice on nuclear power.
✅filling 15% of European gas storage this summer.

The Mayor of London is desperately trying to shirk responsibility for brutal bus cuts that HE proposed. Even promoting a petition against his own decision. It’s beyond belief.

Make no mistake, these cuts are the Mayor’s political choice & do not need to happen.

Delighted to hear ⁦@GregHands⁩ confirm ⁦@The_CCSA⁩ reception that ‘CCUS is essential, not optional’ to get to #netzero & that emitter projects shortlist will be out ‘next month’ 👍

The Mayor of London is running a campaign of cheap political shots, rather than the serious business of governing. Sign our petition to save our bus routes. Many are to be abolished - sign it here https://www.greghands.com/campaigns/stop-mayor-khan-and-tfls-chelsea-fulham-bus-cuts

A fantastic afternoon at our Presidents Reception at the House of Lords. Great to see so many CCSA Members and to hear from @beisgovuk Minster @GregHands!

Now is the time for #CCUS

A pleasure to address the @The_CCSA annual reception in Parliament.

Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage is a big part of the UK’s green, low Carbon future.

I outlined the next stages in getting to 4 CCUS clusters by 2030.

🥳Great to see the new secondary entrance at Imperial Wharf station up and running

🚂The £1.7M project will mean better journeys for all our passengers

🎀Thanks to @TfL, @transportgovuk and @GregHands, MP for Chelsea & Fulham for joining us at the opening ceremony!

Mayor Khan has extended his bus 🚌 cuts ✂️ consultation until 7th August.

Due to “exceptionally high interest” - hardly surprising, he is massacring London’s key bus routes.

But we need it extended to the end of the summer.

Great to be with Finland and Sweden colleagues @Haavisto @AnnLinde tonight to mark news they are joining @NATO.

We need a strong, united NATO to deter aggressors in an increasingly geopolitical world. 🇬🇧🇸🇪🇫🇮 #NATOSummit #WeAreNATO

Our CEO, @NinaSkorupska, and our Director of External Affairs, @Amy_MacC, had a really productive meeting with @GregHands this morning.

@REAssociation and its members are looking forward to working on review of energy markets with @beisgovuk in the near future.

Our #event on the future of #Europe’s #energy security and the role of #Ukraine takes place tomorrow at 6PM BST in the Palace of Westminster!

At @Climate_Action_ Forum today I enjoyed meeting @toddington_h and @NickHenry_CA and other climate innovators.

@GRIDSERVE_HQ for example is modernising EV charging infrastructure on our highways 🛣 so we can scale up 🇬🇧 EV roll out.

💬 “Net zero essential and will only be achieved though innovation … catalyst to driving more action to decarbonise even faster.”
@GregHands @beisgovuk

#ClimateActionLive #CIF22

Looking forward to an interesting and informative day and the Climate Innovation Forum….Greg Hands MP confirms UK Government commitment to Net Zero and the need to decarbonise even faster.

Tonight @HouseofCommons has backed the NI Protocol Bill.

It provides practical solutions to problems caused by the Protocol and protects the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement.

While a negotiated outcome remains our preference - the EU must accept changes to the Protocol itself.

Mayor Khan 🌹 doesn’t inspire confidence by how he announced the bus 🚌 cuts ✂️ on 1st June, hours before the Jubilee.

In the very next tweet, he opened a petition against his cuts!

Makes people cynical about politics.

More on Mayor Khan’s bus 🚌 cuts ✂️

On @BBCLondonNews, I urged Khan to cut costs, not services.

For example, there are 518 @TfL staff paid more than £100,000 - at £508,000 pa, the boss gets paid 3 times the Prime Minister.

NI Protocol Bill returns for 2nd reading today.

It will fix problems the Protocol has created in Northern Ireland & uphold the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement. Our preference remains a negotiated outcome, but EU continues to rule out change to Protocol👇

Russia has been cutting off gas supply to parts of Europe.

Britain gets very little gas from Russia - and even those imports are down 75% since last year.

But we need to be prepared for any knock-on effects. Here are the steps I’m taking to bolster winter security of supply 👇🏾

As the @G7 gathers in Germany, Prime Minister @BorisJohnson and I want to be very clear about our support for Ukrainians and for President @ZelenskyyUa: It is unwavering. We stand with you, and we are staying the course.

Great news for Chelsea & Fulham, as I open the expanded Imperial Wharf station.

With £1.5m funds from @transportgovuk and £200k from @TfL, this station will grow its passengers.

I was here with London Mayor @BorisJohnson @danielmgmoylan & @team_greenhalgh to open it in 2009!

This morning I am at @ImperialWharf station to officially open the refurbished & improved station.

I was here for the opening in 2009 with @team_greenhalgh - it’s been a massive success and has connected Sands End, Chelsea Harbour & Lots Road in a really positive way!

Save the Number 11 Bus 🚌 Route!

With ⁦@twocitiesnickie⁩ campaigning against Mayor Khan’s absurd call to scrap the 116 year old route. 😡

Already 3,000 Chelsea & Fulham constituents have signed 🖊 the petition.

My latest weekly news bulletin for #Chelsea and #Fulham residents.
