Great to catch up with Lissie Harper and celebrate her successful campaign. #HarpersLaw officially came into force yesterday and it's down to her tireless and inspiring campaigning that emergency service workers finally have the protection they deserve.

Well done Lissie Harper on your campaign to change the law on sentences for those who kill emergency workers. Honoured to join you & @KieranMullanUK & @Matt_VickersMP who led in Parliament. The heroism of PC Harper, killed in the line of duty, won’t be forgotten. #HarpersLaw

Today the law changes to further protect public-facing workers, inc those in customer service roles. Thanks @Matt_VickersMP for your support of the aims of our #servicewithrespect campaign

Our Armed Forces are among the most extraordinary and hardworking people in this country. They put themselves in harms way to keep us all safe.

Today we thank them for their extraordinary service to our country. #ArmedForcesDay

This afternoon I drove an 81yo lady from my Council ward in Kent to her sister's funeral in South London, as she doesn't have a car and would not have been able to get there with the train strike.

I guess we all make choices. https://twitter.com/zarahsultana/status/1538956865895374853

Zarah Sultana MP @zarahsultana

I will be on an @RMTunion picket tomorrow to show my solidarity with workers fighting for jobs and fair pay 💪🏽

Great to see @Matt_VickersMP on GB News before his debate in Parliament on ending cages for farmed animals! Here he is with a stuffed Beatrice, the rescue hen at the centre of our campaign with @HumaneLeagueUK and @RSPCA_official to end cages for laying hens in the UK 👏

'The public have paid 600 pounds per household to keep them in jobs, this is the way the union barons are thanking the public for all that money' says Grant Shapps - adding the strike is "unnecessary" and "should be called off".

Really enjoyed joining @Matt_VickersMP & @theresecoffey to celebrate @marksandspencer & @princestrust reaching 10,000 young people through Marks & Start.

The programme helps support skills development and creates new job opportunities across the UK. https://jobs.marksandspencer.com/marks-start https://twitter.com/MandSnews/status/1537035974680748032

M&S News @MandSnews

Great to celebrate 10,000 Marks & Start places with @PrincesTrust @ukparliament. Thanks @Matt_VickersMP for hosting us and @theresecoffey for speaking. Great to see so many MPs join our colleagues to celebrate, including @RishiSunak

As a member of the APPG on Loneliness, I understand how important it is to break the stigma. @marmaladetrust's excellent yearly campaign aims to do just that. Get involved and take a look at their excellent resources this #LonelinessAwarenessWeek 👉 https://www.marmaladetrust.org/

👑 🥳 What a week of celebrations for The Queen's Platinum Jubilee! I was extremely lucky to be able to see the 𝙛𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙘 events going on across our area. An incredible tribute to a truly inspiring achievement. Stockton knows how to party! #plattyjoobs

I look forward to welcoming @OxBridg3LnPS's Lauren Amerigo-Skipper to Westminster to train as a UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador! I am thrilled that she will be joining the UK Parliament Teachers’ Institute 27-29 June @UKParlEducation #TeachUKParl

@Matt_VickersMP asked why there was slow progress on improving the speed of asylum case decision making. David Neal said an increase in the volume of cases, slow decision making, slow recruitment and a high attrition rate of staff as well as low staff morale were all contributing

This #CarersWeek2022 is a great opportunity to say thank you to every carer across the country for the vital job they do. Particularly our inspiring unpaid carers who support and care their loved ones under sometimes extremely challenging circumstances.

The PM has shown he can get the job done. He led the country through COVID, broke the Brexit deadlock and stood up to Putin's aggression whilst others dithered.

He's a friend of Teesside and delivered billions for our area. The Prime Minister backs Teesside and I’m backing him.

In the 100 days since Putin’s barbaric invasion, Ukrainians have fought back with supreme courage and dignity.

Our support for Ukraine will never waver until Ukrainians enjoy the peace and freedom that their heroism deserves.

#VolunteersWeek is an annual opportunity to recognise and thank #volunteers🧡

During an exceptionally difficult year, people from all walks of life around the UK have taken the time to volunteer and made a huge difference to people
& their communities.

Over the next days we will pay tribute to The Queen's inspiring 70 years of service. Her Majesty has dedicated herself selflessly to this country and its people. Thank you, Your Majesty!

Here are some commemorative paintings from Yarm & Eaglescliffe Rocks #PlatinumJubilee

Fantastic to welcome the Prime Minister to Stockton recently to check out our town centre and visit CityFibre who are investing £28 million installing ultra fast, full fibre broadband across Stockton, as well as training local people and creating great local jobs.

Today marks the start of #VolunteersWeek2022! Whether it be volunteering in local litter picking groups, in hospitals or out in the community, volunteering plays a vital role in our communities. Now is our chance to thank these incredible people for their fantastic contribution!

A grim report into the state of violence and abuse towards retail workers from @the_brc today. It's shocking that retail workers continue to suffer just for doing their jobs.

We have extended pub and bar opening times until 1am over the Jubilee weekend as we come together to raise a glass to toast Her Majesty’s incredible service to our country over the past 70 years. Long may she reign! #PlatinumJubilee
🇬🇧🥂

Businesses like @CityFibre are making the most of government schemes to create jobs.

A high-skill, high-wage economy is key to levelling up and uniting the whole UK.

Great to see the Prime Minister @BorisJohnson receiving such a warm welcome from Stockton residents today. A pleasure to have have him here to discuss our local priorities.

MP @Matt_VickersMP will open the debate for MPs to discuss the petition ‘End the Cage Age for all farmed animals’ on 20th June at 4.30pm. We welcome this important debate on ending cages for laying hens and pig farrowing crates #EndTheCageAge Watch debate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVnduOuv9-4

Pleased to be backing the Public Order Bill. This Bill will clamp down on lefties gluing themselves to whatever they can get their hands on, causing mass public disruption, stopping dying patients getting to hospital and wasting police time.

This Epilepsy Week, the focus is on the vital role that family, colleagues, loved ones and health professionals play in supporting people with epilepsy #EpilepsyTogether 💜

Head over to @epilepsysociety and read some incredible stories: https://epilepsysociety.org.uk/news/national-epilepsy-week-2022

Christ the King School was nominated as school of the month by our MP Matt Vickers for the sponsored walk Year 6 organised and went on to raise money for the people of Ukraine. Well done Year 6 you make us so proud!

🇺🇦 After they raised £475 for Ukraine through their sponsored walk, I was delighted to award my School of the Month to @CTK_thornaby! Fantastic work for such an amazing cause.

Today marks 9 years since Fusilier Lee Rigby was murdered through a heinous act of terror in the streets of Woolwich.

My thoughts are with his family, friends and those who served beside him.

DEAL DONE - another investor choses Teesworks. 🤝

💷 £150 million pound investment.
👷‍♂️ Creating 250 jobs.

This world-first energy project will produce carbon-free LPG, meeting 5% of the UK's demand.

That means affordable, home grown energy for people not on the gas grid. 💪

.@ONS jobs stats out today, good news in challenging times

The number of payrolled employees is at a record high

Unemployment is at its lowest level since 1975

We are helping people keep more of what they earn and supporting them with £22bn to help with household bills

Congratulations to Ukraine on winning Eurovision 2022! Incredible song and amazing to see the solidarity across Europe.

Also a huge congratulations to @SamRyderMusic on his second place finish. Never thought I'd be seeing so many douze points for the UK!

🇬🇧🤝🇷🇼 Good to see the Government getting on with the job and putting dangerous people smugglers on notice through our ground-breaking deal with Rwanda

In the current climate of soaring food prices and families and individuals struggling to make ends meet, removing these offers would have been completely the wrong thing to do.

An excellent #QueensSpeech today outlining this Government's intentions. Very pleased to hear that giving residents more involvement in local planning, seizing the opportunities of Brexit and giving police more powers for safer streets remain important priorities going forward.

Yet another Labour claim about Beergate blown out of the water.

VE Day marks 77 years since the end of WW2 in Europe. Today we remember the millions from every corner of the world who gave everything to defeat tyranny, oppression and evil.

Witness claims in the Sunday Times that some at the gathering were "not working" and "were just getting pissed".

The source added: "In my view, it was an event that is akin to when the prime minister and Rishi Sunak were ambushed by a birthday cake."
