Iโ€™m terribly saddened to hear that Dame Deborah James has died. What an inspiration she was to so many.

The awareness she brought to bowel cancer and the research her campaigning has funded will be her enduring legacy.

Because of her, many many lives will be saved.

A really important speech on cyber security from @NCSC CEO @Lindy_Cameron in Tel Aviv ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ

The greatest cyber threat to the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง โ€“ now severe enough to pose a national security threat โ€“ is from ransomware attacks.

Preparedness through our whole of society approach is essential ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ


Our CEO @Lindy_Cameron is in Tel Aviv ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ for #CyberWeek. She spoke on the responsible and legal use of commercial cyber capabilities, Ukraine, and collaboration between academia, industry, and international governments.

We've picked out our 10 highlights ๐Ÿ“–

Today I met with veterans and medical practitioners as part of #PTSDAwarenessDay to talk about how we improve our work on this crucial issue. Through Op COURAGE - the @NHSEngland Armed Forces mental health service - we now treat around 4,400 veterans a year.

Today is #ArmedForcesDay and I want to pay tribute to all serving military personnel and our veterans who sacrifice so much to defend democracy and keep us safe both here in the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง and around the world.

Thank you all for your service, dedication and commitment.

Cyber is among the top security challenges that Commonwealth countries face and attacks in this domain are on the rise across the world.

By working together we can boost our resilience against attacks and make it harder for malign states to meddle in cyber space๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ


Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office @FCDOGovUK

Cyber-attacks are a growing security challenge for Commonwealth countries.

The UK will provide ยฃ15 million to help them defend against cyber-attacks and stand up to malign regimes.


We want veterans across ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง to transfer skills they've gained into fulfilling jobs once in civilian life.
It was great to meet @VeteransInto and employers to see how our funding will help them expand their successful training for veterans into HGV driver roles ๐Ÿš› #ArmedForcesWeek

Weโ€™ve provided ยฃ100k in funding to @VeteransInto to provide training for veterans into roles as HGV drivers

Today @SteveBarclay met with veterans working as HGV drivers and their employers in Manchester #EmployVeterans #SaluteOurForces

As part of #ArmedForcesWeek I welcomed a very special guest to Downing Street. Finley Skinner, 7, from Derby, has raised thousands of pounds for a war memorial village that houses our veterans.

Well done Finley - I hope you enjoyed your well deserved visit to Number 10๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

When Barclay met Barklee ๐Ÿถ
Black Labrador Barklee is one the amazing @ServiceDogsUK dogs I met recently. The charity is involved in life-changing work for our military vets like Barkleeโ€™s handler Lee, training the animals to become assistance dogs to those struggling with PTSD

Itโ€™s clear that people here donโ€™t want Labour to overturn our Brexit delivery. Nadeem is a brilliant Conservative voice who is committed to delivering on local priorities โœ…

Thank you to all the pupils and staff at Orchards Church of England Academy for coming to show me your very own book, The Wisbech Wonder ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿซ

Such an incredibly talented group and I hope you enjoy your day visiting Westminster with my colleague @SteveBarclay ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

As #ArmedForcesWeek gets underway, we are determined to make the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง the best place in the world to be a military veteran. That means investment ๐Ÿ’ท in specialist healthcare and employment opportunities.

Read my piece in today's @Daily_Express ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

We are funding military charities around the UK as part of our commitment to doing everything we can to make the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง the best place in the world to be a veteran. At @ServiceDogsUK I was able to see first-hand how they help veterans and their families through a unique programme ๐Ÿถ

Brilliant to visit @ServiceDogsUK in Sussex to see how they train rescue dogs ๐Ÿถ to help some of our veterans who struggle with PTSD. Absolutely vital work and great to meet and talk to all of those involved. Weโ€™ll be sharing more stories throughout #ArmedForcesWeek.

Fantastic news from @AbertayUni.

The 1st uni in the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง to be named an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Education by @NCSC is bringing 30 new cybersecurity jobs to Dundee.

A great example of industry and academia coming together to protect our essential services.

Great to meet with representatives from the food and drink industry alongside @DefraGovUK to discuss work to mitigate current price rises.

The #FoodStrategy๐ŸŒฑ sets out how to boost the British food industry, back farmers and harness innovation to safeguard food security.

Delighted to have @davidjusteat as our new Cost of Living Business Tsar. His appointment will strengthen our partnership with the private sector to develop and promote new and existing business-led initiatives to support people with the cost of living ๐Ÿ‘‡

Today marks 40 years since the liberation of the Falkland Islands.

A tribute to the extraordinary efforts of our armed forces and their loved ones, and remembering those who lost their lives.

We thank you wholeheartedly.ย 

#LTW2022 has begun, and the progress we have already seen in the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง this year is impressive.

โœ… record-breaking investment means we're 2nd globally
โœ…Over 1,000 startups raising ยฃ12.4 billion
โœ… More than 20 cities or towns across the UK with at least 1 unicorn

We're working closely together across the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง to change the data rules, meaning we can share more information with the ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ Government that will improve access to early learning and childcare funding for families that need it most.

With more services now online๐Ÿ“ฑ, the government is harnessing this innovation.

Weโ€™re transforming 75 of the most used government services, keeping the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง moving forward and embracing the #digital age.

We are fast-tracking the most promising medicines, to:

โœ… Alleviate pressure on the NHS & busting the Covid backlog.

โœ… Get life saving drugs to patients more quickly.

Another manifesto commitment achieved.

Hear from @SteveBarclay in @theipaper today on how the government can harness the #digital innovation that is happening all around us, with the government taking a huge step forward in transforming 75 major government services๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

PM @BorisJohnson and @LeoDochertyUK met with veterans who participated in Britain's nuclear testing programme. We are indebted to their service - the nuclear deterrent keeps us safe to this day.

The government is committed to finding appropriate means to mark their dedication.

Under @BorisJohnson we won an 80-seat majority in 2019. We need to use the rest of this Parliament to deliver for the country we were elected to serve, not turn inwards.

My article on @ConHome.๐Ÿ‘‡

From @SteveBarclay: My fellow Conservatives face a choice. Look outwards, and follow @BorisJohnson. Or look inwards โ€“ and tear ourselves apart.

Congratulations to Her Majesty The Queen on your #PlatinumJubilee.

Your remarkable service to the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง and Commonwealth is recognised and appreciated at home and across the globe.

Iโ€™m freezing prescription charges this year to help ease cost of living pressures & put money back in peopleโ€™s pockets.

The rise in the cost of living has been unavoidable & while we canโ€™t completely prevent it, where we can help - we will.๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

The @NHSEngland survey for views on veterans' mental and physical health services closes in a week.

I am determined to make ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง the best place in the world to be a veteran and this survey will help us improve the support we offer.

Have your say here ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ—ฃ

From today, all Senior Civil Service job vacancies must be advertised externally. We want to reduce the size of the Civil Service to ensure value for money but when we do recruit we want the widest possible pool of available talent to choose from ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

As @BorisJohnson has said, we want ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง to regain our status as a science superpower and in doing so, level up all across the country.

Cyber is key to this mission given the wide range of jobs available and increasing amount of business conducted online๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป
