Met with @HeathrowAirport this week to discuss regional connectivity. Clear that more action needed from them for routes to/from @TeesAirport

The RMT's unwarranted strikes haven't caused the mass overcrowding on buses or heavy congestion on our roads some feared.

But the Union is damaging the lives of everyday hardworking people that they claim to represent.

They should call off Saturday's strike now.

Very proud of UK LGBTQ+ businesses we have with us here in Texas #PrideMonth

Their companies demonstrate why UK innovation helps to strengthen the bonds of friendship and shared economic prosperity with the US🇬🇧🇺🇸

Protecting national security is our top priority.

As a condition for financial support through the new Nuclear Act, the Government reserves the right take a 'special share' in all future nuclear projects.

We're set to approve 8 reactors this decade - we must have peace of mind.

We are changing the rules to avoid certain prisoners being released on a Friday.

By making sure prison leavers have the support they need to stay on the straight and narrow, we are reducing their chances of reoffending – and protecting the public.

I will also be liaising with the organisers to do whatever I can to get refunds for those who suffered major delays or who were unable to attend as a result of the delays.

I can only apologise again. (3/3)

…with some giving up completely and going home.

I will be speaking to the organisers and the police who stopped and diverted traffic following an accident on the A66 and we’ll be conducting a full review and debrief as a matter of urgency.

Hi everyone.

Firstly, let me say I am so sorry to those people who experienced delays and were caught in the traffic on your visit to the airshow. As a result of the incredible demand and interest in our airport and the airshow, I know for many it meant hours of delays (1/3)

One of the questions I get asked most as Education Secretary is “What does ‘TL’ stand for?” 🤔💭

It stands for T Levels, and as Education Secretary, I will make them as famous as A levels.
