Really great to welcome @NigelHuddlestonMP to the new Stourbridge Glass Museum. Our glass-making heritage in Wordsley, Brierley Hill & Stourbridge isn’t just something to be proud of locally, but also something that can be celebrated more widely across the region and the country.
Gutted to have been sanctioned by Putin’s vile regime in Russia 🤦♂️ Apparently I’m not allowed to go on holiday to Russia this summer. Not sure that this will damage Ukraine’s valiant resistance as much as Putin imagines.
94 days until @birminghamcg22 Commonwealth Games open and there are thousands of jobs in security, catering, hospitality, logistics, and cleaning.
Find out more & how to get them at tomorrow’s #b2022 jobs fair at Duncan Edwards Leisure Centre in Dudley:
Happy Orthodox Easter to everybody celebrating today, but particularly those in Ukraine who are onserving the festival in such difficult circumstances this year.
The government must do everything it can to deal with the cost of living challenges faced by people in the UK.
That’s what the Prime Minister told MPs tonight and he was completely right.
Together we will get on with the job and focus on the people’s priorities.
A very Happy Easter to everybody celebrating in #DudleySouth and beyond. The Lord is risen.
It was a pleasure to be at the official opening of @WHEFC new church building last weekend ahead of the start of Holy Week.
This new build has been a long time in the making, and the end result is a true testament to the passion of all involved.
Rules same for everybody and penalties must be same for everybody. Police hv issued fines and those fines hv been accepted & apologies made. UK’s interests best served by PM getting on with job and addressing urgent challenges here & abroad, not by long party leadership contest.
The PM has apologised again for spending 9 minutes in his office at 2pm as work colleagues came in and wished him a happy birthday (as reported in @thetimes the day after)
Now let’s let him get on with the job 🇬🇧👊 https://twitter.com/MrHarryCole/status/1513925825841803271
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.
The Kingswinford Methodist Church Coffee Morning meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month. They're a really great chance to enjoy a cuppa, cake and chat with others - and it was especially good to speak with newer members of the group who said how welcome they felt!
And my last school visit of the week was to the brilliant Crestwood Park Primary School.
The children were so proud to show off their arts and crafts, and it was great to hear about the children getting stuck in with local issues such as litter picks!
The pressure's always high when you're asked to pick the winners in a children's Easter egg/Easter bonnet decorating competition... especially when there are as many brilliant entries as there have been at Bell Vue Primary this year!
It was so great to meet Netherton C of E Primary School's Wellbeing Ambassadors earlier this week.
It was also fantastic to see the 'Our Heritage' work which each year group do to learn about the local area and the lives that would have been lived by generations past.
It was great to finally meet the new Brockmoor Primary School cabinet earlier this week!
Each post is democratically elected by the other children - helping them to understand the democratic process from a young age.
Another fantastic primary school visit - this time to Woodside.
Thank you to all the children on the school council for such interesting and important questions about all sorts of topics.
I had the pleasure of meeting the full school council at the Glynne Primary School, followed by a tour of the school led by council representatives Francesca, Freya and Will. All three are such fantastic role models for their classmates!
Every Tuesday @SgtFriendship meets at Wall Heath Community Centre between 10:30 and 12:30 for tea, coffee, cake, biscuits, entertainment... and plenty of laughs!
Roger and the team provide such a valuable service. A real example of community!
After 2 long years, it was really great to welcome a coach full of constituents back to Parliament this week!
Thanks to everyone who came along - it was fantastic to show you around where I work on your behalf... and try to answer some pretty tough questions in a Q&A session!
Jobseekers in Dudley South have met face to face with businesses and organisations at my latest annual Apprenticeships & Skills Fair. There were over 597 opportunities available — we need good quality jobs and training for local people. Give this film a 👍 if you agree!
We must stop reloading the Kremlin cash machine. https://twitter.com/KwasiKwarteng/status/1501229850454937600
NEW – the UK will phase out the import of Russian oil and oil products by the end of 2022.
This transition will give the market, businesses and supply chains more than enough time to replace Russian imports – which make up 8% of UK demand.
Fancy joining in on my next constituent's visit to Parliament?
To book or find out more, just contact my office... while spaces last!

Great to catch-up with the team at Energy Saving Glass in Dawley Brook, Kingswinford.
The team are discussing ambitions for greener production through the use of renewable energy - potentially making this Black Country firm a leader in the glass manufacturing industry.
Absolutely right. @Keir_Starmer did not make the decisions over not prosecuting Savile, but frankly even if he had personally made those mistakes, nothing would have justified this kind of abuse and attempted intimidation.
Appalling scenes outside Parliament today. @Keir_Starmer, @DavidLammy and all Parliamentarians should be able to go about their work without threats and intimidation. This should be condemned by all. Thank you to the police once again for providing protection.
Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, where we remember the millions of people murdered in the Holocaust and other genocides.
It was a privilege to sign the @HolocaustUK Book of Commitment, and pay tribute to the extraordinary survivors who work tirelessly to educate people today.
Very sad news that Erdington MP Jack Dromey has died. We disagreed on much but Jack was a model of decency with allies and opponents alike. He cared deeply about Birmingham and the wider West Mids. Thoughts and prayers with @HarrietHarman and their family at this difficult time.
This is the right decision, and desperately needed by many firms in the hospitality and leisure industries who have seen trade collapse.
This package delivers the support they need, but a return to furlough would only have made the problems worse.
.@sajidjavid says that there must always be an option for a lateral flow test “and I would not support a vaccines only option”.
