🇬🇧 On Armed Forces Day it was good to be at the launch of ‘We Were There’ - a video about life on the Home Front during the Second World War.

It was lovely to chat to those with personal and family experiences, remembering veterans and the wider impact of conflict.

Great to have the opportunity once again to raise #AorticDissection at #PMQs - including the hard work of @AorticDissectCT and their fantastic patient resources videos featuring @WhisperingBob - https://aorticdissectioncharitabletrust.org/courses/living-with-aortic-dissection/

Next week we will be questioning Lord Geidt, the Independent Adviser on Ministerial Interests, about his first year in the post, and the recent changes to the powers of the Independent Adviser.

“I have been humbled and deeply touched that so many people have taken to the streets to celebrate my Platinum Jubilee.”

As the #PlatinumJubilee weekend draws to a close, Her Majesty has sent a thank you message to all those who have marked her 70 years as Queen.

🌞 Thank you to the Marple Bridge Association and Compstall Community Council for organising a great Platinum Jubilee event yesterday.

Lovely to see everyone enjoying themselves in the sunshine 🌞

👑 Great turnout at the Romiley Platinum Jubilee street party yesterday. So nice to see the community coming together!

A big “Thank you” to the organisers who made it all possible! 👑

🔔 I took part in the Platinum Jubilee Ring yesterday at St Thomas’ Church, Mellor. @stthomasmellor

70 people with one minute each on the bell all raising money for good causes. 🔔

Superb Platinum Jubilee well dressing at St Thomas’ Church in Mellor. Well done to the team for their creativity with natural materials and hours of work. @stthomasmellor

Great to be at the lighting of Stockport’s Platinum Jubilee Beacon with @MaryRobinson01 following a lovely service reflecting on Her Majesty the Queen’s 70 years of dedicated service to our country.
🇬🇧 God Save the Queen 🇬🇧

Good to join the Mellor march this year, raising funds for local and Ukrainian cancer charities. £10k distributed this year. 100s taking part. Thank you to the organisers! 🇬🇧 🇺🇦

Happy Birthday Your Majesty!

Today as The Queen turns 96, we’re sharing this photograph of the young Princess Elizabeth aged 2.

Then, in 1928, it was never expected she would be Queen, and this year Her Majesty is celebrating her #PlatinumJubilee - a first in British history.

If banning conversion therapy will stop the likes of me being subjected to mental cruelty in repressing my true self, why not so for someone who is trans? I can see no logic in excluding trans people from legislation banning conversion therapy. Let’s have some empathy.

Plans to extend the Bredbury Park Industrial estate have been rejected by the Planning Inspectorate. It would've meant a huge logistics park next to the River Tame. It follows a campaign by the MPs Andrew Gwynne and William Wragg - along with local people who live nearby.

🌲BREDBURY GREENBELT SAVED🌸

I’m pleased that the Planning Inspectorate has rejected Quorum's appeal to extend the Bredbury Parkway estate into the Tame Valley.

My thanks to @GwynneMP & @bbgkpp who have worked hard, alongside local campaigners, throughout the appeal.

🌳TAME VALLEY SAVED🌳

Delighted to announce that we have won, and that the Planning Inspectorate has REJECTED Quorum's appeal to extend the Bredbury Parkway estate deep into the Tame Valley.

Read my full statement and the Inspector's report here: https://andrewgwynne.co.uk/gwynne-celebrates-as-tame-valley-is-saved/👈

The Disasters Emergency Committee has launched an urgent appeal to help people fleeing conflict in Ukraine. #UkraineAppeal

The UK Government will match pound-for-pound up to £20 million donated by the public to this appeal. #UKAidMatch

Thanks to @StockportMBC for pulling out all the stops for my request to get the town hall lit up 🇺🇦. Stockport Ukrainian Club turned up in their droves - and sang the Ukrainian national anthem on the steps. A tear was shed.

What happened to Keir Starmer tonight outside parliament is appalling. It is really important for our democracy & for his security that the false Savile slurs made against him are withdrawn in full.

✍️ On the eve of the 70th anniversary of her Accession to the throne, The Queen has written a message thanking the public and her family for their support, and looking forward to #PlatinumJubilee celebrations over the coming year. #HM70

This year The Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee, marking 7⃣0⃣ years as Monarch.

To begin the celebrations, Her Majesty viewed a selection of cards, letters and artwork sent to her by children and other members of the public to mark this, and previous, Jubilees.

I am so thrilled to become Patron of the @TheRFL and @EnglandRugby 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏉

Two fantastic organisations who are committed to harnessing the power that sport can have in bringing communities together and helping individuals flourish.

The smear made against Keir Starmer relating to Jimmy Saville yesterday is wrong & cannot be defended. It should be withdrawn. False and baseless personal slurs are dangerous, corrode trust & can't just be accepted as part of the cut & thrust of parliamentary debate.

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day.

In 1938, Sir Nicholas Winton brought Jewish children from German-occupied Czechoslovakia to safety in the UK.

Fifty years later, That’s Life reunited him with some of those children.

Today we will commemorate the 77th anniversary of the liberation of the German Nazi concentration and extermination camp #Auschwitz.

Apparently the 1922 executive shouldn’t leak, but I specifically said I didn’t support a rule change… 🤷‍♂️ https://twitter.com/Steven_Swinford/status/1486432003654356992

.@Nus_Ghani is a friend and a credit to the Conservative Party.

This is a very serious matter which needs a proper investigation. I would strongly support her in making a formal complaint - she must be heard.

@thesundaytimes There is no place for islamophobia or any form of racism in our @Conservatives party. @Nus_Ghani is a friend, a colleague & a brilliant parliamentarian. This has to be investigated properly & racism routed out. #standwithNus

Tory MP on Christian Wakeford defection: “The chief whip hauled him in last night and it sent him over the edge when they threatened his seat. This is what bully tactics look like”. There are plans to redraw Bury South seat under boundary change plans.
