It is heartening to see 4 community projects in Bury St Edmunds benefit from £463,508 of funding from @TNLComFund. These groups are fantastic in the great work and support they provide to local people and their community through what have been some extremely challenging times.

This #ArmedForcesDay 🇬🇧 I want to pay tribute to the remarkable service of personnel, past and present. They are always first to step up in times of need. Thank you for all you do.

This week I'm proud to support #CervicalScreeningAwarenessWeek. Cervical screening (smear tests) can save lives, but 1 in 3 do not attend when invited. Follow @JoTrust to learn more about the test and where you can find support.

Grateful to Energy Minister @GregHands, for listening to me and colleagues from across the region raising concerns about East Anglia GREEN proposals and the consultation.

Good to meet Energy Minister @GregHands last night with my #OffSET colleagues from Essex, Suffolk & Norfolk. We continue to express our concerns about @NationalGrid’s East Anglia GREEN consultation.

Damson & Wilde welcome to Bury!
Great to see another new #hospitality #business open in the town centre on Abbeygate Street🥙 🍸

It was great to join @NFFNUK and Chair @LinesMartin to hear the latest nature-friendly thinking around the future of food and farming in the UK. Innovation in farming is crucial to tackle the challenges of the future. 🌾 🚜

James Cartlidge MP 🇬🇧 🇺🇦 @jcartlidgemp

Full house in Hintlesham village hall for Pylon public meeting - great Qs, huge support for Offshore Grid #OffSET

Wonderful day at @CerealsEvent talking to farmers and scientists. Genetic tech and innovation are unlocking growing more with less impact. Also loved @NHAG_UKandROI jubilee tractor, which runs on biomethane from waste. #agriinnovation

Lovely to talk to @thebedfed and wider mattress industry today, about how we can reduce the environmental footprint of mattresses. Some great work underway but lots still to do #CircularEconomy.

On this final day, I hope the street parties have not been dampened by the skies. Thank you to everyone across the #BuryStEdmunds constituency who has organised these wonderful memories! Most of all a big thank you to Her Majesty 👑

Fantastic first day of #PJ2022 watching our amazing service men & women Trooping the Colour & that incredible fly-past to celebrate the Queen’s official birthday & Platinum Jubilee - then home for beacon lighting. However you choose to celebrate, have a wonderful Jubilee weekend

Earlier in the week, I had the pleasure of attending the @SuffolkShow, a fabulous two-day event that showcases the very best our county & beyond has to offer. I would like to congratulate organisers and volunteers on such a fantastic show!

Had a brilliant day at #SuffolkShow with @Jochurchill_MP - massive thanks to @NFUEastAnglia @ProagriLtd and @CLAEast for hosting some lively, insightful, constructive and useful conversations with farmers and @MTF_podcast and @The_Barker_Boys for lovely chats and podcasting 🙂

Constructive conversations with @JanetHughes and @Jochurchill_MP @DefraGovUK during our roundtable discussion on the agricultural transition today at the @SuffolkShow

It was a pleasure to pay tribute in the House of Commons, to Her Majesty on her long service to our country as we celebrate her Platinum Jubilee year🇬🇧👑

Arts Minister Lord Parkinson recently visited Norwich's wonderful @SainsburyCentre and the excellent @FoodMuseumUK in Stowmarket, both of which received funding support during the pandemic #HereForCulture

Thrilled to attend the opening of The Nest SEND building at St Edmunds Catholic Primary School. A much needed provision in a beautiful setting. Well done to everyone involved for their hard work and determination to bring this project to fruition. @suffolkcc

I started this great project with @SHSHeadteacher & others at the back end of 2020. We have since worked with @MidSuffolk to get to the point we are at today with these exciting plans which will offer sport, community, education & wellbeing aspects in the heart of Stowmarket.

East Anglian Daily Times @EADT24

Plans for a major new sports hub in Stowmarket are expected to take a step forward next month. https://www.eadt.co.uk/news/local-council/new-sports-facilities-for-stowmarket-8996840

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.

I am really excited to see the Genetic Technology Bill being introduced in Parliament today. This Bill will enable precision breeding technologies to improve the sustainability, resilience, and productivity of agricultural systems.

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.

We’re introducing the Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill to Parliament.

Agri-food and innovation will drive economic growth.

Precision breeding technologies, like #GeneEditing, have a range of benefits 🧬

We visited @TheQuadram who are improving crop nutrition for consumer health.

Fantastic to visit @The_RHS Chelsea Flower Show today. Great to see wonderful exhibits focusing on environmental sustainability and improving biodiversity.

WATCH - On tonight's @BBCNews (6pm) you can watch Professor Cathie Martin and Dr Jie Li explain about Vitamin D enriched tomatoes

Read the paper in @NaturePlants - https://okt.to/KOTlZp

Fantastic to see the Festival of Suffolk @SuffolkF2022 #torchrelay passing through the #BuryStEdmunds constituency today. From #Combs in #Stowmarket to #WalshamleWillows & many lovely places inbetween. Thank you to everyone who has worked hard to create this #jubileecelebration

My letter with MP colleagues to Energy Minister @greghands asking that offshore transmission options be included in @nationalgriduk East Anglia GREEN pylon consultation.

Great to catch up with everyone at the Bury Deaf Association coffee morning, to learn about the fabulous work they do, sign language courses, the HOHO club & to talk through issues of concern, such as swimming lessons for deaf children & sub-titles on films & streaming services.

Fully support @TheatreRoyalBSE bid to become an @ace__london National Portfolio Organisation- it would be an excellent addition to the wonderful offering of theatres in their portfolio across the country and worthy of the investment!
