Staying active is so important. That's why I'm pleased to announce that the £320m PE and sport premium will continue for another year, so that more schools like @floragardensw6 can offer their pupils enriching sporting opportunities ⚽🎾🏀🏈

Great visit to DHL Express at East Midlands Airport yesterday. Thanks to all who showed me around. They have 370 planes UK wide and 4000 employees in Express. Everyone I talked to said it was a great place to work. The Bentley in the pictures was going to Cincinnati!

As Armed Forces Week continues, I wanted to highlight some of the support that is available to veterans locally.

The Veterans Wellbeing Hub takes place every Friday at the Loughborough Wellbeing Centre. I was delighted to open the Hub recently.

I have been calling for an end for Friday releases for a while now. Around a third of offenders leave prison on a Friday, giving them an extremely limited time to sort out accommodation and arrange job support before services shut down for the weekend.

Thanks to the Business Secretary ⁦@KwasiKwarteng⁩ for joining #Loughborough businesses this morning at the business breakfast that I hosted at the Careers and Enterprise Hub. Some really great questions and engagement from attendees.

Incredibly useful visit to @HSBC_UK in Loughborough this afternoon to see their Safe Space. Anyone experiencing domestic abuse can now walk into any of HSBC UK’s branches and access a Safe Space where they can seek specialist support and advice.

Ahead of the Platinum Jubilee, I spoke in the House of Commons earlier as part of the Humble Address.
I talked about Her Majesty's incredible seventy years of service on the throne, and the Jubilee events taking place in the Loughborough constituency.

Today the Chancellor unveiled a Plan for a Stronger Economy, outlining a £37 billion package of support to help families with the cost of living as we grow our economy.

Alongside the action we’ve already taken this year today's measures will ensure:

The vast majority of households receive £550.

Pensioners receive £850.

And almost all of the eight million most vulnerable households will receive support of at least £1,200.

Watch 👇

We will send a one-off £650 cost of living payment directly to around eight million of the lowest income households.

Worth over £5 billion, there will be no need for people to fill out forms – we will send the payment straight into bank accounts.

It was great to attend the Dynamo Summer Cup tournament at the weekend at @lborodynamofc where I handed out medals to those who took part.
We were also joined by Bow Bear from @RainbowsHospice! Well done to everyone involved in the tournament which was such a success.

I am delighted that England has successfully won the rights to host the Women’s Rugby World Cup in 2025.

This great news will help to turbo-charge the women and girls’ game #RWC2025
