We LOVE shouting about our #simulators! Why?

👉 #VR technology allows us to train new plant operators in a risk-free environment.

This tech is already used in medicine and military to train new recruits. It only made sense that #construction would be next!

Great to visit @AccXel_UK in Gloucestershire a few days ago with @Mark_J_Harper; a brilliant new initiative to build skills led by industry - and show the next generation the value of a career in construction

Good to speak with Eddie Hughes, the responsible Minister, last week to discuss park homes. NE Derbyshire has parks in Marsh Lane, Staveley, New Whittington & Old Tupton - important to raise issues regarding rent increases where residents are particularly keen to see progress

This week I spoke with Saudi Arabia's Minister of Industry about how we strengthen resilience in our critical minerals supply chains.

Working with international partners on this important agenda is vital for future prosperity and security #uksaudipartnership @UKinSaudiArabia

Thanks to Staveley Town Council for inviting me to help find winners for this year's Art & Crafts competition - 2022's themes were Chesterfield Canal and Staveley's railway. Pleasure to help the Mayor and Mayoress find winners from a very strong set of entries!

The world needs secure, sustainable and transparent critical mineral supply chains.

That's why I was pleased to join Under Secretary Fernandez and allies to launch the Minerals Security Partnership in Toronto yesterday.

Grateful to Professional & Business Services for our sector productivity roundtable yesterday - making business even better helps everyone. Lots to do!

Changing PMs is huge thing & now is not time for leadership contest

I’m giving PM the chance to get on with the job & restore trust after these difficult times
