David Amess was a great friend and a brilliant mp for nearly 40 years. His death is truly shocking and a huge loss to his constituents and to Parliament. At this time all our thoughts are with his family

I am sorry to be stepping down as Minister for Media and Data and saying goodbye to a great team of ministers and officials. It has been a privilege to play a part in shaping the future of UK public service broadcasting and in reforming our data laws using our new Brexit freedom

We are celebrating the one year anniversary of the #NationalDataStrategy. The National Data Strategy Forum is playing a key role in taking this forward so find out how to get involved:

One year on from publishing the #NationalData Strategy, we’re sharing an implementation update and a call for views on how to monitor progress.

We are consulting on new plans to improve the UK’s data protection laws to benefit consumers and businesses.

We want regulations that help:
💡Boost innovation
📈Increase economic growth
🤝Protect the public

Have YOUR say now:

Now that we've left the EU we can seize the opportunity to develop a world-leading data regime that will deliver for people across the UK.

Forging new global data partnerships and designing our own common sense data laws are all part of our plan.


The threatened expulsion of award-winning BBC journalist Sarah Rainsford is an unjustified action by the Russian authorities. We urge them to reconsider this retrograde step which can only do further damage to media freedom in Russia #DefendMediaFreedom

Harassment and intimidation of journalists doing their job @nicholaswatt @BBCNewsnight is totally unacceptable. That’s why the UK is taking a lead in tackling this through the National Action Plan @dcms,detained%20and%20subjected%20to%20rape%20and%20death%20threats.

Nub News couldn't ask for a better partner than the @coopuk given its work in the communities it serves.

The new Co-op Community Noticeboard in our towns will showcase Co-operate, an online community centre.

Partners with similar principles.
