Holidaymakers deserve certainty ahead of their first summer getaways free of restrictions.

That’s why today I’ve set out 22 measures to support the aviation industry to minimise disruption and protect passengers – helping with everything from recruitment to scheduling.

Our children are truly inspired. Great careers fair here @ChattendenPrim Huge thanks to everyone who gave up their time for our children. @Medway_Research @TheBABOfficial @KellyTolhurst @Medway_NHS_FT @galmum @RochesterBridge @JoeGalani @Guildhallmuseum @KentPoliceMed

Against strike action ? sign the petition - as we work our way out of Covid and deal with the cost of living challenges, Labour’s response is to back strikes putting barriers in the way of working people. #StopLaboursStrikes

It was a huge privilege to be invited to The National Service of Thanksgiving for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee at St Paul Cathedral today. An honour to represent Rochester & Strood at the service to mark the exceptional 70 years of dedicated service by our Queen.

Amazing start to our Queen’s #PlatinumJubilee celebrations. Thank you for your 70 years of dedicated and exceptional service to our nation. #GodSavetheQueen

Hate to be all earnest, but journalists and MPs saying the PM has watered the ministerial code down need to correct themselves - the expectation of resignation if ministers mislead parliament is clearly still there. He “hasn’t changed the rules mid-game”…

I’ve heard people’s concerns about the impact of the Energy Bills Support Scheme repayments on future bills.

So those repayments will be cancelled.

Furthermore, the £200 of support for household energy bills will be doubled to £400 for everyone.

Disabled people face extra costs in their lives like having energy-intensive equipment around the home or workplace.

So, to help the 6 million people who receive non-means tested disability benefits, we will provide an extra one-off disability cost of living payment worth £150.

From the autumn, we will send over eight million pensioner households who receive the Winter Fuel Payment – an extra, one-off pensioner cost of living payment of £300.

We will send a one-off £650 cost of living payment directly to around eight million of the lowest income households.

Worth over £5 billion, there will be no need for people to fill out forms – we will send the payment straight into bank accounts.

We are introducing a temporary, targeted Energy Profits Levy charged on profits of oil and gas companies at a rate of 25%.

We're also building in a new investment allowance that doubles the relief for the energy companies that invest their profits in the UK.

To help with the cost of living, we're selling over 1 million rail tickets at up to ½ price for trips from 25 Apr to 27 May 🎫

After 2 yrs of living life virtually, the Great British Rail Sale🚆 starts today.

The PM has apologised, accepted responsibility & made changes accordingly in No10. This is not the time to change our leader. His focus must be on what’s happening in Ukraine and dealing with the cost of living challenges our country and people are facing.

At a handshake distance. @BorisJohnson and @ZelenskyyUa walked through the center of Kyiv and talked to ordinary Kyivans. This is what democracy looks like. This is what courage looks like. This is what true friendship between peoples and between nations looks like.

We've doubled the number of degree apprenticeships since I became Minister: I want to double it again by 2024.

With universities asked to set new targets for degree apprenticeships, today we've announced £8m to invest in unis and colleges that deliver.

My letter to P&O boss makes clear that this government will not stand by while the requirement to treat seafarers with due respect and fairness is brazenly ignored.

This is devastating news for all P&O workers & their families.

It is a u-turn on assurances given to me and the RMT Union over the last two years.

It is shabby corporate behaviour by Dubai’s DP World and an insult to the decades of loyalty and hard work by Dover’s workforce.

This is no longer about tackling climate change or reaching Net Zero targets.

Ensuring the UK’s clean energy independence is a matter of national security.

Putin can set the price of gas, but he can’t directly control the price of renewables and nuclear we generate in the UK.

Members of the @HouseofCommons and @UKHouseofLords were in the House of Commons Chamber to hear President of Ukraine @ZelenskyyUA address the UK Parliament.

Tonight we have sanctioned Kremlin associates Alisher Usmanov and Igor Shuvalov.

For as long as Putin continues his barbaric attack on innocent Ukrainians we will continue to exert every power we have to inflict maximum economic pain on Putin and his war machine.

Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office @FCDOGovUK

NEW RUSSIA SANCTIONS: The UK has imposed more sanctions on leading oligarchs. These associates of Putin are now cut off from their significant interests in UK.

RT is no longer available on British TVs. Channel is now down across Sky, Freeview and Freesat. The Russian dictator will now find it harder to spread his disinformation and lies.

"Of course we're going to take refugees."

Prime Minister Boris Johnson says the UK is "way out in front in our willingness to help refugees" and "will help people fleeing in fear of their lives".

Amendments to the Building Safety Bill have been unveiled by @MichaelGove.

These proposals will protect leaseholders from exorbitant cladding costs and extend protections to cover other fire safety defects.
