#BREAK @Nus_Ghani tables amendment to National Security Bill to exclude @HikvisionHQ and @DahuaHQ etc from public contracts. ✊
Every bill is a China bill.
#ArmedForcesDay parade in Chingford and Chingford Mount. A day to reflect and thank the hard work and dedication of our servicemen and women who work all year round to keep us safe and remember those who gave their lives for the freedom we enjoy today.
Today on #ArmedForcesDay2022 🇬🇧 I want to thank all those who are serving and who have served to defend to our country and the families and loved ones who support them.
I’m pleased that having raised concerns about the nomination of HikVision for a @thebsia security award, the nomination has been withdrawn. Correct decision. We should be banning this company, not honouring them. #Uyghurs @ipacglobal @lukedepulford
The New York Times studied China’s surveillance capabilities by examining more than 100,000 government bidding documents.
China’s ambition to collect personal data is more expansive and invasive than previously known, our investigation found.
'Brexit was a revolt by the unexalted, ordinary public who said "we've never stopped believing in our country".'
Conservative MP Sir Iain Duncan Smith speaks to Nigel Farage about a report discussing the way civil servants think of their country.
'We should have a bonfire of the nonsenses'
Sir Iain Duncan Smith joins @Nigel_Farage to discuss whether now is the time to 'complete Brexit and leave the ECHR'

Hong Kong has plunged further in a human rights ranking report, bringing it on a par with Saudi Arabia in some indicators, and closer to converging with China as the Communist party government deepens its control on the region. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/22/hong-kong-plunges-lower-in-global-human-rights-index
I'm deeply concerned to hear @hikvision has been nominated for a @thebsia security award.
@ipacglobal colleagues and others have been arguing that @hikvision, which has facilitated the mass abuse of #Uyghurs, should be removed out of every UK building. Rescind the nomination...

#NEW @MPIainDS secures Westminster Hall debate on the #NSL and anniversary of the handover to #HongKong
29th June at 11am. #SanctionsNOW
Children’s hospices like @HavenHouseCH provide vital support for children and young people with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. Everything they do is #ForTheChildren – helping families make the most of their lives together, no matter how short.
Great to meet the team @BreastCancerNow and support #NoTimeToWaste calls for quicker breast cancer diagnosis. Catching cancer early makes a real difference and more must be done to ensure there are no barriers to getting an early diagnosis and access to breast cancer specialists.
The foundations of Britain’s past successes are still there & strong, this should guide us as we plan for how we should act post-Brexit. Much depends on whether our governing elites can re-discover the self-confidence that was once the hall-mark of Britain
Only Remainer elites have lost confidence in Great Britain. Many ordinary un-exalted members of the public never stopped believing in their country. The elites who run Whitehall must learn from them and embrace the opportunities Brexit affords.
I've been struck by the overwhelming support of Chingford and Woodford Green residents who have opened up their homes to families who had fled the war in Ukraine. It was a great pleasure to welcome some of the families to Parliament today for a visit.
Great to be out campaigning for local schoolteacher, primary school head, and @Conservatives candidate for Tiverton and Honiton #HelenHurford #TivertonandHonitonByElection
🚨Campaign for Baroness Stroud’s all-party amendment to the Procurement Bill is gathering pace.
Amendment would require @GOVUK to ‘eradicate’ slavery from its purchasing, and to develop a plan to reduce dependency on authoritarian states. #Uyghurs https://twitter.com/arisefdn/status/1537753384731779073
WATCH: Arise CEO @lukedepulford & @tomhfh on upcoming Procurement Amendment. The Amendment, laid by Baroness Stroud, addresses supply chain reliance on authoritarian states and human rights abusers ⚡⚡⚡

On Tuesday, the European Court of Human Rights blocked the flight to Rwanda, despite three UK courts - the High Court, the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court - after careful consideration, agreeing the flight could go ahead.
Julia and ex Tory Party leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith MP discuss the "hypocrisy" of those opposed to the Rwanda plan, after the first flight got cancelled.
"They are in a safe country now which is France. They could settle there, so this is a choice issue."
@JuliaHB1 | @MPIainDS
'This has turned into a legal farce'
Sir Iain Duncan Smith says it is 'ridiculous' that the government's plan to deport migrants to Rwanda was halted after an intervention by the European Court of Human Rights.
Families and business are facing global cost of living pressures. Labour's response? Backing national rail strikes. #StopLaboursStrikes

We must have the courage to change the Northern Ireland Protocol and uphold the Union. After endless negotiations with the EU, we have made little or no progress in resolving the problems the Protocol is creating. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/06/12/must-have-courage-change-northern-ireland-protocol-uphold-union/
We are looking forward to this amendment reaching the Commons. The lead @sajidjavid has taken on #Uyghur slavery must be adopted by the whole of Government, and we must finally address our dependency on China, especially throughout our critical industries.
Baroness Stroud lays amendment to the Procurement Bill - targeting 🇬🇧 dependency on 🇨🇳 and seeking to eradicate #Uyghur slavery from public procurement.
Every Bill is a China bill. #IPAC

Thank you to Tide and Sam Bolam who spoke about the important work of @tide_carers, the vital role of carers and the need to improve diagnosis and dementia pathways. Let's keep #carers and #dementia #FrontOfMind #CarersWeek2022

It’s time for a statutory levy on the gambling industry. It goes to the heart of Adam Smith’s values. Governments need to take action when markets act against the wellbeing of the people they serve.
The #Chingford branch of the Royal British Legion put on a wonderful Sunset Parade & #PlatinumJubilee Service to bring the Jubilee celebrations to an end.
Happy and glorious.
Long to reign over us.
God Save The Queen!
Brilliant #PlatinumJubilee street party celebrations in Chingford & Woodford Green. 🇬🇧 Well done and thanks to everyone involved organising such a fantastic day of events. #JubileeCelebrations

Update - the proposed acquisition has been abandoned.
The UK Government monitors the market at all times to identify acquisitions of potential national security interest. We will intervene where necessary. https://twitter.com/KwasiKwarteng/status/1524408337131048967
Today I’ve ordered an in-depth national security review into the proposed acquisition of a specialist graphene producer in Wales by a Chinese company.
We are open for business, but absolutely not at the expense of Britain’s national security.
Statement from the APPG on #Uyghurs regarding @UNHumanRights High Commissioner @mbachelet’s recent visit to Xinjiang.
It is clear that the Chinese authorities did not provide the full, unfettered access to Xinjiang for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights that we and our international partners have long called for.
“We have spoken to many frontline workers who say they are terrified [to call out ‘honour abuse’]. They are paralysed by the fear of litigation or the accusation of being a bigot.” @CristinaOhq told @Nigel_Farage
📚You can read our report here: https://www.centreforsocialjustice.org.uk/library/no-honour-in-abuse
Article @benedictrogers "In 2019 Lee visited Xinjiang, where the Chinese regime is accused of genocide, and later told Hong Kong lawmakers they should take lessons from Beijing’s handling of the Uyghurs."
IPAC 🇳🇿 Co-Chairs @IngridLeary and Simon O’Connor express their concern over:
- 🇨🇳 deals being done which show intent to “militarise the Pacific”, and;
- cynicism of the timing of those deals ahead of Pacific Forum meetings.
“A classic case of divide and conquer.” 👇
The visit of @mbachelet to #Xinjiang has concluded, amid widespread criticism.
It would appear that #IPAC’s fears regarding COVID restrictions and stage managed tours of detention facilities were well-founded. See below for statement 👇
I’m delighted that these senior legal figures have produced this important legal opinion. It’s time for all Common Law jurisdiction judges to withdraw from the Court of Final Appeal. They are legitimising a heinous system. #HongKong
#NEW major legal opinion on judicial independence in #HongKong released, featuring major judicial figures in 🇬🇧🇦🇺🇨🇦

Statement from @RishiSunak is a good start and welcome, but more needs to be done. Our response to this economic crisis should have three goals at its centre: adequate financial support for the poorest, helping those who are able into work, and reducing the burden of taxation.
The Government says it ‘stands ready’ to help hard-pressed families through the #CostOfLivingCrisis
Here’s our action plan how👇
Our wonderful new @wfcouncil Conservative group.
What a team 🌳💙
Calling-in the acquisition of #NewportWaferFab by Nexperia is absolutely the right decision.
It's been a long campaign involving #IPAC members from the 🇬🇧 🇺🇸 and elsewhere, joined by other groups and non-IPAC members. A huge collaborative effort.
Good decision by @GOVUK 👇
Today, I called-in the acquisition of Newport Wafer Fab by Nexperia, a subsidiary of a Chinese company.
There will now be a full assessment under the new National Security and Investment Act.
We welcome overseas investment, but it must not threaten Britain's national security.
Wonderful to join the hundreds of people who turned out to the @HavenHouseCH garden party at the weekend to mark the #queensplatinumjubilee
Many of the children and families cared for by the Woodford Green based hospice, enjoyed live music, tea and cakes, a great afternoon!
Happy Platinum Jubilee! We came together with our local community, supporters and families to celebrate #HerMajestysPlatinumJubilee!
A special thank you to @GatesFord for sponsoring the event, our musicians who gave their time, cake bakers and to all our volunteers! Thank you!
