I know how important the issue of untreated sewer outflows is to people locally.

I look forward to seeing the outcome of the OEP’s investigation & hope this will continue the journey to cleaner waters we all want to see.

I welcome the additional funding and investment into our NHS mental health services announced this week. This will improve the support given to people needing to access these services in #Cornwall, who are often incredibly vulnerable and at crisis point.

Delighted that @Asda and @AsdaFoundation have awarded an Investing in Spaces and Places grant worth £6500 to an organisation in our area. This will be used to improve and transform local community facilities. Read more here:

Pleased to see Mid Cornwall Metro plans move onto the next stage of the Restoring your Railway programme, and congratulate the team who have been working hard on it to get it to this stage. #StAustell #Newquay #Cornwall

Yesterday I visited @BugleSchool, where I spoke to Year 6 pupils about their recent visit to #Parliament & took a variety of questions on them about improvements they would like to see in the local area. I am very happy to visit schools across Mid-Cornwall to talk about my work

As we build back after Covid-19 @DofE is needed more than ever. Doing DofE builds teamwork, resilience, problem solving & helps young people to realise potential. I’m so proud of all the young people in #StAustell & #Newquay who've made this a record-breaking year for take up.

Excellent @wildanet breakfast this morning at the @RoyalCornwall Show with Council Leader and local MPs @stevedouble & @scottmann4NC.

Read about the benefits of improved gigabit broadband connectivity across #Cornwall published by @CuriaUK:

A pleasure to welcome our PM to #RoyalCornwallShow today

Despite all that's been going on, amazing to witness positive response & so many wanting to talk to the PM

@BorisJohnson has already delivered amazing support for our Duchy & there is no doubt he will continue to do so

Good to meet the CEO of @VirginOrbit in #Parliament today ahead of first satellite launch from @SpaceCornwall later this summer #StAustell #Newquay #Cornwall

I am delighted to see that the Queen’s Baton will be visiting #StAustell on 4th July as part of its epic journey across the Commonwealth and the UK ahead of @birminghamcg22 #Cornwall #QBR2022

This announcement is a giant leap for #Newquay and the Cornish space sector, and something I have worked hard to make happen since I was first elected in 2015.

@SpaceCornwall @CornwallCouncil #Cornwall

This is welcome news and something I have long campaigned for:

#Cornwall #StAustell #Newquay

Issues with pollution of seas and rivers remain something that many local people contact me about, and it was good to meet with @SouthWestWater in #Newquay to discuss what they are doing to improve their infrastructure and plans for the future.

It's taken a while but I eventually kept my promise this evening to buy @laurencereed the famous Tomahawk steak @The_Longstore I promised him when he retired from @BBCCornwall great to catch up again.

Deeply honoured to be able to attend Harry's funeral today. A wonderful service that reflected Harry's character and faith. @BBCNicWitchell gave a great tribute. Lovely of the family to be willing to share this time with so many. He will be greatly missed.

I would like to wish Her Majesty The Queen a very special 96th birthday today as we celebrate her Platinum Jubilee year.

Look forward to celebrating The Queen’s historic achievement this summer. A true inspiration to us all.

Long may her reign continue.

Great to welcome Rebecca Tonks CEO @steweeggs to Parliament as part of the Better Business Day to campaign for ethical and sustainable business practices. St Ewe are a great local business committed to producing high quality free range eggs & passionate about animal welfare.

It is great news that the Government has today confirmed that #Cornwall will not lose out with its replacement for EU funding now Brexit has taken place. In fact Cornwall has by far the largest amount of SPF funding per head of anywhere in England.

Communities across the country are benefitting from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

More money will go to the areas that need it the most to tackle local problems.

#Cornwall to get six more life enhancing Changing Places toilets

I have long been a champion of Changing Places toilets and have campaigned to raise awareness of them and the need to have them in our communities in Mid-Cornwall

#StAustell #Newquay

I can confirm that 21 very ill Ukrainian children with cancer have landed safely in UK this evening.

@NHSEngland will now ensure they get life-saving care in safety.

Hugely grateful to everyone involved in helping get these children and their families here.

ICYMI: Last week, Business Secretary @KwasiKwarteng visited @SpaceCornwall, the site of upcoming UK satellite launches. 🚀

A new facility there will support spaceflight operations, research and collaboration, and create high-skilled jobs. 🛰️


Pleased to see that organisations in #Cornwall will soon be eligible to apply for a share of the Youth Investment Fund, which will provide life transforming experiences for young people in some of our most deprived communities, in their formative years.

This afternoon I had a call with Sir Stephen Hillier, chairman of @UK_CAA, who updated me on the progress being made towards completing the licensing process to launch satellites from @SpaceCornwall which will bring huge economic opportunities and well paid jobs to Cornwall

Early today I met with Simon Hallet, Chairman of @only1argyle, discussing the #fanledreview of football and the implication for the club. Many local people support Argyle. I would be very interested to hear your views on the review:

The Private Parking Code of Conduct announced today creates a fair and level playing field for the industry, and will protect private car park users from the poor behaviour we have seen in the past.
