I've been pleased to work with Members on all sides of the House who share my passion for rivers, & I paid tribute many opposition MPs today. But I won’t let that consensus be undermined for short term political campaigning, & will call it out when I see it.
Very pleased to open today’s Backbench Business debate on the Strategic Policy Statement for Ofwat. We have a real opportunity to rebalance water companies’ priorities towards the environment, tackling sewage pollution in our rivers and waterways:
Terrific effort by Ackleton Community Group who encouraged almost every house in the village to dress up magnificently to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee
Hoping everyone in South Shropshire enjoys the extended Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Look forward to joining lots of local Jubilee events over the weekend!

Met Exchequer Secretary @HelenWhately in @HMTreasury yesterday with constituent Michael Saunders, CEO of @bibendumwine, to encourage simplified system for Alcohol Duty proposals
Really disappointed Barclays have chosen to abandon South Shropshire customers and will be closing Ludlow and Bridgnorth branches in August. I shall be demanding a meeting with management to seek a rethink.
Today, the Government has reached and exceeded its goal, set in 2017, to see an additional one million more disabled people in work by 2027
New data released today shows that 1.3m more disabled people are in employment, compared to five years ago
Spoke up for wine and beer sellers in @HouseofCommons to ask Exchequer Secretary @Helen_Whately to ensure changes to Alcohol Duty help simplify duty system rather than make more complex and costly to administer.
Latest ONS figures today show unemployment down again locally. With real concerns about the cost of living, very pleased businesses in South Shropshire are continuing to create jobs and give more people the security of a regular paypacket.
In EAC's recent report on carbon border adjustment mechanisms #CBAM we said that putting a price on imported carbon can incentivise sectors to move from carbon intensive practices and promote use of low-carbon products.

@CommonsEFRA @Ofwat Thank you for inviting our Chair @Dunne4Ludlow to participate in the pre-appointment hearing. As our Water Quality inquiry found, water company practices have a substantial effect on the water in England's rivers: Ofwat has a key role to play in regulating the industry.
We're content with Iain Coucher appointment as the new @Ofwat Chair after our hearing on Wednesday
We did have observations including that he should set out a detailed plan for how @Ofwat will drive improved performance by water companies
