My thoughts are with everyone tonight in Kingstanding following the horrific explosion in Dulwich Road - I lived off this road for 20+ years and know the community will rally round each other for support and love. Our emergency services, as ever, have shown true professionalism

Carnival time is approaching. The ever popular Shirley Carnival will take place in Shirley Park on Saturday 9th July. There are only a few stalls pitches left so if you would like a stall, don't leave it to the last minute, book it now at https://www.shirleylions.co.uk/events/shirleycarnival.html

Since February, @TNLComFund has provided £23.9m in funding to charities and groups in the West Midlands with nearly £30k being allocated directly in #Solihull. New play equipment on Damson Lane has been funded through the National Lottery. Great news for the constituency!

Joining the ⁦@CommonsDCMS⁩ to give evidence on tourism and the #DMOReview from 10.00am this morning

Keir Starmer has spent 11 days refusing to condemn the rail strikes. On Wednesday he ordered his MPs not to take a stand against the militant unions.

Now we know why: In private, he's backing the strikes which will grind the country to a halt.


The Transport Secretary @grantshapps is currently in the chamber standing up for hard working constituents who will be impacted by the the RMT strikes next week. Sign our petition below to stop the strikes!

I have just spoken in the House of Commons chamber about the Government's proposals with respect to Channel Four. You can find my contributions to the debate in the video below👇👇👇https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnLjHIfxV8o

With just 45 days to go until the Commonwealth Games, it is great news that Mell Square in #Solihull is to be used as a festival site for the games, allowing residents and tourists to watch the games LIVE.

This morning I met with @DWP Work Coaches based in the new DWP office in #Solihull. Was great to catch up on work they're doing to increase employment in Solihull. Also pleased that the DWP set this office up in Solihull, bringing more jobs to the constituency. @theresecoffey.

This agreement is great news for #Solihull - ensuring no one is left behind is critical as we updgrade the UK's digital infrastructure. 4,000 more households in Solihull will get access to world-leading broadband.

Commiserations to Solihull moors but what a great season! Next season I’m sure they will come back even stronger and bring league football to our borough!

I will work tirelessly over the coming weeks and months ahead to ensure that the decision-makers at the various agencies who failed Arthur Labinjo-Hughes implement the Government's recommendations in full. Listen to my thoughts below👇👇👇

The brutal murder of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes was truly horrific and should never have been allowed to take place. The report makes it clear that Arthur was let down by several agencies across Solihull👇👇👇https://www.julianknight.org.uk/news/statement-julian-knight-mp-arthur-labinjo-hughes

I’m freezing prescription charges this year to help ease cost of living pressures & put money back in people’s pockets.

The rise in the cost of living has been unavoidable & while we can’t completely prevent it, where we can help - we will.👇🏽

Delighted to hear about the great work @GambleAware and it's partners are doing to prevent and treat gambling harms at their Policy Fair recently.
