👏 Thanks you @michelledonelan and @nadhimzahawi for standing up to Advance HE and protecting academic freedom.

This comes further to the letter I wrote with my Common Sense group colleagues, which you can read here: http://britainuncancelled.co.uk/woke-curriculum #FreeSpeech

Yesterday, I led a debate in Parliament about the campaign to #SaveDerbyCounty.

I raised important concerns about the administrators, the EFL, and the importance of legislation to make sure that what happened to Derby can never happen again.

Thank you to @GlobalFund and partners for making this visit possible, and for all you do to #EndMalaria. Together we will #FightForWhatCounts and reach #ZeroMalaria.

Delighted to attend the Power of Partnerships Conference organised by the University of Nottingham.

It was a brilliant event with hundreds of regional businesses, celebrating success and sharing best practice regarding co-operation on net zero and sustainable levelling-up.

Patients & families at the heart of todays ⁦@RSMUK⁩ cardiothoracic section meeting ⁦@NHSuk⁩ ⁦@AorticDissectCT⁩ ⁦@SCTSUK⁩ ⁦@RoyalPapworth⁩

Desperately sad to mark 100 days since Russia invaded Ukraine with the Ukrainian community in Derby, coinciding with the traditional remembrance service.

Thank you to all who attended, and to all who have been demonstrating our constant support for our Ukrainian friends.

Great to attend the All-Party group on Neglected Tropical Diseases last week, raising the profile of NTDs ahead of next week’s Kigali Summit in Rwanda.

So much more can be done on the world stage to prevent and protect against NTDs. #EndTheNeglect and #BeatNTDs

Yesterday, I discussed my concerns around the #DerbyCounty situation with the Sports Minister.

I have been seeking an urgent debate in the House this week, and will continue to raise concerns in Parliament, and press Quantuma for progress, in the coming days.

This #LonelinessAwarenessWeek I want my older constituents who are feeling lonely to know that there’s support available.

Delighted to visit @HelloFreshUK, who have just set up brand new premises in Derby. They are an innovative and fast-growing company taking advantage of Derby’s location at the heart of the UK, bringing jobs and investment to our region.

Great to visit the site and meet the team

Congrats to the phenomenal effort by #TeamAorta’s Tim & Pete who took on the Yorkshire #ThreePeaks carrying a banner with the names of those who have lost their lives to AD. An epic challenge for @ibuildrunners who himself was close to the same fate in 2019. A true #AorticWarrior

On June 26th I'll be #trailrunning the Marathon du Mont Blanc* I'm also hoping to raise some money for the @AorticDissectCT in memory of a great friend who left us too soon, Ben Latham

Today is International Day of Action for Women’s Health.

I am calling for continued investment by the UK Government in supporting women’s health, and by other countries in banning harmful practices like child marriage, recently banned in the UK by my Act.

#WomensHealthMatters

The #DerbyBookFestival is taking place again this week, with over 70 events across 10 venues in the city.

There was an important public meeting for Our Belper Mills this weekend.

Our mills are in need of repair and I have repeatedly called in Parliament for intervention to ensure that our World Heritage Site is protected for generations to come.

Delighted to see the latest Ofsted report into @DerbyCC Children’s Social Care department, rating it one of only 3 outstanding cities in the country.

Congratulations to Cllr Evonne Williams and her executive team for this well-deserved recognition.

We agree with @Pauline_Latham that the balance between multilateral to bilateral aid should be corrected. What is even more important than the balance between multilateral and bilateral aid, is that all of it is focused on eliminating extreme poverty and tackling inequalities.

Another important rally in support of Ukraine this weekend in Derby. 🇺🇦

Mid Derbyshire has been incredibly welcoming for Ukrainian refugees, and we stand in support of our Ukrainian friends in the face of appalling hostility and aggression from Putin’s Russian forces.

And more…

A privilege to present my constituent, Dave Rowen, owner of A52 Executive Chauffeur Service, winner of the Parliamentary Taxi and Private Hire Awards 2022 for offering his service to the community of Derby, transporting vulnerable people to and from the vaccination centre.

Delighted to meet the owners of Project D a thriving business in my Mid-Derbyshire constituency and hear all about the journey of friends and owners - Max, Matthew and Jacob who established Project D in 2018 . It is always a pleasure to meet local Derbyshire business owners 🍩

📹Watch: At the end of a tumultuous season for @dcfcofficial , I look back on the process of administration, the challenges we have faced and why I am more determined than ever to continue to push for effective football regulation here in Parliament.

#SaveDerbyCounty

Just before Recess, I led a debate in Parliament about why Derby should be the HQ for Great British Railways.

Derby is at the centre of the UK’s network, has an amazing rail history and an even brighter future – that’s why I and many other MPs are supporting #DestinationGBR

🚆

A journey… 2019 to 2022.

I had the absolute privilege of working with and learning from @maryampasha and delivering a TEDx talk in December 2019.

This experience is one that changed my life.

I ended my @tedxlondon talk with a plea “child marriage must become a crime”.
