I am thankful to Right Honourable MPs @JasonMcCartney, @DehennaDavison, @NickFletcherMP & @John4Carlisle whom I met last week to discuss the problems faced by us with regard to #JammuKashmir, decided to continue this engagement & to hold further meetings to deal with the issue.

Today marks the start of #ArmedForcesWeek.

This week we are flying the Armed Forces Day flag to show our support and celebrate our armed forces community, from veterans to currently serving troops, service families, reservists and cadets.

Listening to the summing up of sessions on connectivity, health, education and skills, enterprise and growth, minerals strategy and the devolving of power. #LevellingUp

Delighted to be welcoming over 300 delegates and setting the scene for #levellingup in the North.
a great opportunity for people working at the very heart of the region to influence Government on policies that can deliver now on the results we all want to see @NRG_Comms

Focus now on real job & career opportunities & how we give young people & job seekers the aspiration & skills to be able to go out & get those jobs.
Apprenticeships & T levels good alternatives to the A level & degree pathways. Am pleased that my @SkillsFair focuses on just this

Workshop now. Consensus that devolution should go further & faster giving back control to local people ie. democratically elected mayors, who have knowledge of local areas and can get the job done. Accountability, scrutiny, capability and devolved fiscal powers vitally important.

Hearing now from @DehennaDavison @MichelleDewbs Sir Howard Bernstein and Bruce Heppenstall (Drax Power) on next steps - for private sector investment, education, jobs, skills, health and housing. Advocating bringing decision making closer to communities.

Carlisle Conservative MP John Stevenson (@John4Carlisle) says he voted against Boris Johnson last night - but if the Prime Minister works to address the concerns of his MPs "I think he could unite the party and take us into the next general election"

This flag - designed by children at Plumbland Primary near Wigton - will be one of 200 featured in the Jubilee pageant parade in London (it sets off at 1430). All the flags were inspired by the environment and designed by children. For more local news https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/england/cumbria

Tobias is wrong. The Single Market puts the EU in charge:
- EU rules
- open borders
- no new trade deals

We need a deal British people control not foreign laws with no say.

Letโ€™s plan for the future and stop looking back. This decision is made. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/jun/02/tory-mp-brexiter-backlash-call-rejoin-eu-single-market-tobias-ellwood?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other

"I think it's right and proper that the Conservative MPs now take matters into our own hands."

John Stevenson has submitted a letter of no confidence in the Prime Minister.
