On #WorldCancerDay my thoughts are with all my constituents and their families who are battling cancer. I will continue to raise concerns about delays in treatment and diagnosis. If you need support coping with cancer @macmillancancer are there to help, ring 0808 808 00 00.

If you are worried about any signs for #BreastCancer, contact your GP. While most changes won’t be breast cancer, we know that the sooner it’s diagnosed, the more likely treatment is to be successful. Find out what to look for with @BreastCancerNow’s TLC: https://bit.ly/3byOacK

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day. We remember the six million Jewish men, women and children murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators, all victims of Nazi persecution and all victims of subsequent genocides. #HMD2021 #HolocaustMemorialDay #LightTheDarkness

Whatever you're up to this festive period, UK service personnel are still working across the globe to keep our nation safe.

I don’t normally recommend books but this is a beautifully written and thought provoking book. If you care about our countryside, nature and high welfare farming you will enjoy it. I hope many MP colleagues will read it. @herdyshepherd1

75 years ago today, Labour Prime Minister Clement Attlee announced in Parliament Victory over Japan, finally the end to fighting it the East and Second World War. On #VJDay75 we honour the sacrifices of our Armed Forces

From attending my first match in 1972, standing on the Kop with my Dad, the excitement of match day has never left me. @LFC remains such an important part of my life. My Dad would have been a proud man today. #YNWA

A seven-year deal worth £642 million has been agreed by @AvantiWestCoast and @AlstomUK for the overhaul of the 56 Cl.390 Pendolinos. This includes a maintenance deal too. Contract creates 100 jobs, and overhaul/refurb will be carried out at Widnes.

Thank you to the people of Halton for re-electing me as your Member of Parliament. It is a privilege and honour to serve you. I will work very hard on your behalf.

9000 Thomas Cook workers failed by bad bosses and the government. The Official Receiver needs to fast track the wages the workers are owed #ThomasCookCollapse #PayUpNow

Asda bosses are threatening their hard-working, loyal staff with the sack if they don’t agree to a punishing new contract.

Asda can afford to treat its dedicated workforce better than this. #AsdaRespectYourWorkers

Fantastic views from high up on the Runcorn-Widnes Bridge today despite a little snow and sleet. No doubt why the maintenance work is so essential. @Balvac_SJB @HaltonBC

Read what I had to say about disabled people in Halton being up to £300 worse off when they move onto #UniversalCredit. https://haltoncab.org.uk/2018/10/30/disabled-people-in-widnes-and-runcorn-can-be-more-than-300-a-month-worse-off-under-universal-credit/

Great to hear that Vicky Park in Widnes has been ranked in the top five Green Flag sites in the recent people’s vote of 1,800 sites. The only one in Cheshire & North West. Well done to all who voted & those who help maintain the Park all year round. #investInPublicParks

My article in today’s @timesredbox on Nye Bevan’s tense negotiations with the British Medical Association: his vision and strategy delivered the National Health Service on 5th July 1948 as he persuaded doctors to join in numbers: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/ea7d5ba4-7d2b-11e8-a645-f0478472c67b https://twitter.com/timesredbox/status/1013689932555194369

Red Box @timesredbox

Referendum, tense talks and the risk of no deal... sound familiar? @NickTorfaenMP on how Bevan delivered the NHS http://bit.ly/2KEnbMs

Why should this be a surprise! I have been raising the difficulty of securing an appointment with your GP of choice for many years in Parliament. A matter many constituents have spoken to me about. #NHS70 ⁦@MikeAmesbury⁩ http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-44643607

I heard of more problems this morning in my constituency concerning the shortage of GP’s and difficulties in recruiting. In 2015 I warned the Government about the GP crisis in this speech https://goo.gl/1LR92K

A pleasure to meet up with you @EwanJagoMYP this morning on a great day for Halton with the official opening of the fantastic @merseygateway. Keep up the good work representing young people in #halton
