This feels like big news. Like so many people of her generation, Theresa May has been on a journey on LGBT rights. The thing is, her position is so much closer to the mainstream than you’d think from reading most of the British media. https://twitter.com/alliehbnews/status/1542610716020150272

WATCH:"Mr Hydrogen" @JacobYoungMP ask about changes to the RTFO in Transport Qs today to stimulate the use of hydrogen in transport

Good to hear Transport Minister, Trudy Harrison say that the DfT @transportgovuk shares his enthusiasm for hydrogen in the transport sector


Today I am at the Hydrogen for Life conference in London, discussing the production and use of hydrogen to best climate change. Hydrogen us the key to unlocking many zero carbon technologies and a big focus of our research at @MPI_UK #HforLife

On the way here, I spotted these advertisements at Westminster tube station, highlighting the importance of Teesside in producing hydrogen for UK industry, transport and homes of the future.

💷 What currency would Scotland use?
🇪🇺 Would they join the EU?
🏢 What would happen to the financial services industry in Edinburgh?
🪖What would happen to the military?

These questions, and many more go unanswered whilst the SNP spend £20m on yet another referendum campaign.

I’m grateful to 🇬🇧 Prime Minister @BorisJohnson for allocating an additional £1 billion for security assistance to Ukraine. 🇬🇧 is our true friend and strategic partner. We appreciate the consistent, leadership support for 🇺🇦 in countering Russian aggression.

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.

PC Andrew Harper was killed protecting the public. Today, Harper's Law, named in his honour, comes into force.

This new law introduces mandatory life sentences for those who unlawfully kill emergency workers in the line of duty.

🚨With our partner @ssethermal, we are stepping up ambitions to contribute to decarbonisation in 🇬🇧 by acquiring power company Triton Power.

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.

Quite a few people asking “where’s the evidence” of antisemitism in High Peak Labour. I’m glad you asked. Let’s take a quick look, shall we?

Former MP and sitting councillor Ruth George is the most noteworthy.


I am so pleased to see Nunthorpe’s new GP surgery opening today. The practice have been brilliant in championing their patients, as have @PatientForumBRN, while the local NHS, @MbroCouncil, Mayor @Tees_Issues and Deputy Mayor @MiekaSmiles have been great colleagues in delivering! https://twitter.com/patientforumbrn/status/1541360252817637376

For the avoidance of doubt - again - I’m not bloody defecting.

To those anonymous colleagues spreading such rumours, my door is always open for a chat.

Ukraine can win and it will win.

But they need our backing to do so. Now is not the time to give up on Ukraine.

The UK will continue to back Ukraine every step of the way.

When I came to Parliament I promised to hold those accountable who conducted witch-hunts against U.K. Veterans. That promise was always professional and personal; I referred Phil Shiner to the National Crime Agency and he will now appear in court on Monday https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/06/24/disgraced-human-rights-lawyer-phil-shiner-faces-fraud-charges/

Reservists balance their civilian life with a military career to ensure that should their country require them, they are ready. 👏


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.
