My latest report as Leader of the UK Delegation to the Council of Europe https://www.johnhowell.org.uk/news/johns-report-june-session-parliamentary-assembly-council-europe

On VE Day I honour the generation who defeated Hitler and his evil tyranny. I also honour those who are still fighting a Russian evil tyranny in Ukraine.

The Liberal Democrats say one thing locally and another nationally on housing – for example, their plans for a 2/3rds increase in housebuilding across England! Power given to increase housing targets, to seize land for housing developers and introduce a Land Value Tax

Tried today with help from UK delegates and others to get “military assistance” put into Council of Europe report into help to Ukraine. Said was implicit but would have been nice to be explicit about what we can give that Ukraine has asked for

A remembrance on Yom HaShoa of 6 million Jews murdered in the Holocaust. Thanks too to HMDT for its work with survivors.

Just returned from a week of discussions and negotiations in Turkey as the Leader of the Monitoring Mission of the Council of Europe. Productive and helpful discussions

I call on my fellow Leaders of national Delegations to the Council of Europe to exclude Russia from SWIFT. It will do the most and do it the most quickly to impact the Russians.

Russia removed from Council of Europe but still under obligation to deliver high standard of human rights - ECtHR dealt with over 6k cases vs Russia.

Appalling and disgraceful behaviour towards the Leader of the Opposition. All harassing of elected representatives are completely unacceptable.

Thank you to @HMD_UK for a moving event yesterday ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day, with Holocaust survivor John Hajdu MBE & survivor of the genocide in Bosnia, Smajo Beso. We are getting ready to mark #HMD2022 next week.

New Covid-19 rules come into effect today that end the requirement to take a confirmatory PCR test following a positive Lateral Flow test

Yesterday we announced plans to require industry to pay to remove dangerous cladding from buildings – protecting leaseholders from spiralling costs while making buildings safer.

We have today delivered £737m to local councils as part of our £1bn package of support for business, so that councils can deliver targeted grants worth up to £6k each to hospitality and leisure businesses and discretionary funding to other businesses affected by the Omicron surge

36,279 people had their booster jabs in this constituency by 2 December. Single most important help against Covid 19

To those who servicemen and women have served and are serving, thank you.

Together colleagues have shared stories of service from their constituencies ⬇️

📺WATCH #Belarus: @JHowellUK speaks about the injustice against Andrei Aliaksandrau & Iryna Zlobina being committed by the Belarussian dictatorship.

On their 300th day of imprisonment, Mr Howell, Iryna's honorary "godparent", calls for their release. #StandWithBelarus

Yesterday, we launched the UK’s Clean Green Initiative – a £3 billion funding package to support the rollout of revolutionary green technology in developing countries – helping the world’s most vulnerable to mitigate the effects of climate change.

At COP26, we announced that more than 100 world leaders have backed a £14 billion agreement to end and reverse deforestation by 2030 – protecting and restoring the Earth’s forests.

Today we announced that all those eligible will be able to receive their booster jabs at walk-in centres without needing to make an appointment, increasing their protection for the autumn and winter months ahead. Had mine yesterday at very efficient Kassam Stadium

At COP26 opening ceremony, the PM will call for world leaders to take concerted action to tackle climate change, with this summit being our last, chance to make the changes. We need to get real about climate change and the world needs to know when that is going to happen.

Yesterday we announced that 11,053 additional police officers have been recruited across England and Wales – putting us on track to deliver our manifesto commitment to recruit 20,000 by 2023. Determined to crack down on crime and back our police

This is a Budget which invests in a more innovative, high-skill economy, delivers world-class public services, backs business, helps working families with the cost of living – and levels up every part of the UK. It provides the foundations for a stronger economy.

Storm overflows help to prevent sewers being overloaded and backing up into homes and businesses. That is why we have a new amendment to the Environment Bill, to secure a progressive reduction in discharges from storm overflows, as part of the measures in the Environment Bill.

1 year ago, we were in the biggest recession in 300 years. Thanks to our Plan For Jobs, we are today recovering faster than our major competitors, more people are in work, and growth is up. But uncertainty in the global economy means that recovery is now under threat.

This what I voted for in the Environment Bill to stop storm overflows not some half-baked amendment that could have cost up to £660 billion

Yesterday we announced £162.5 million in extra funding to help the adult social care workforce boost recruitment and continue providing high-quality care for everyone who needs it.

As we enter the winter months, seasonal weather increases transmission of viruses, including flu and Covid - it is vital that all those eligible to get a first vaccine dose, booster, or flu jab do so to protect themselves, their loved ones and the NHS
