Good to discuss @BradfordCollege’s industry placement programme this morning. Bradford businesses are working with the college to enhance the student experience. The team with over 40 organisations like @SandaleTrust in my constituency, hosting hundreds of students every year!

It was lovely to visit Year Six pupils at @DeltaSouthmere and Worthinghead Primary schools recently. Lots of fantastic questions from students taking an interest in politics, and an insight of the roles and responsibilities of an MP!

Today in Parliament, I congratulated #Bradford on becoming UK #CapitalofCulture2025 and thanked all those who helped put the bid together.
This is a new chapter for Bradford that will lay the foundations of a culturally and economically stronger city for decades! @bradford2025

💡 Today, I challenged the Government on what it was going to do to keep the lights on for homes and business this winter.
📈While bills skyrocket and we’re warned of winter blackouts, the UK is turning away natural gas because there isn’t enough storage.

Well done to the many groups in Bradford South who organised wonderful events to celebrate the Queen's #PlatinumJubilee!

It was lovely to join events including at local charity @SandaleTrust and with @RevJohnBav at St John the Evangelist to share in the festivities.

Crossing fingers and wishful thinking on part of Ministers won’t be enough to keep the lights on.

We’ve been warning of this.

More imports of gas and coal and blackouts possible. Let’s hope next winter is windy and mild.

We’ve only gone and done it! #CityofCulture2025. What a result! The bid has brought our city together and will be a springboard for cultural and economic regeneration in Bradford! This is Our Time and Our Place #Bradford2025.

Here's my latest update covering some of the work I've been doing in Bradford South and in Westminster over the last few weeks. Take a look 👇

Honoured to lay a wreath today at the Cenitaph as Chair of the Rugby League APPG and take part in this emotional annual tradition. Lest we forget.

"I do not want to be back here in 2023 still trying to open the Government's eyes to the massive freight train coming towards them" says @JudithCummins MP

An exodus from NHS dentistry is in motion.

Dentists and patients need Government to act now and fix a broken contract.

Last day today to vote in @coopuk AGM. If you are an eligible member you should have received an email with voting instructions. All voting information is here https://www.co-operative.coop/get-involved/agm

🤞Good luck to all students getting ready for exams as GCSE and A-level exam season starts this week. You've got this!

The Passport Office is in chaos and it is causing my constituents to miss out on holidays, weddings and funerals.

Delay after delay, it is a shambles.

If you are a Bradford South constituent, please contact me and I'll do my best to help. http://judith.cummins.org.uk/contact

Today Bradford comes together to mark the 37th anniversary of the day when 56 never came home. Forever remembered @officialbantams

"We need a new deal on dentistry that makes it a fully-funded, equal member of the NHS family – not as a forgotten Cinderella service" says @JudithCummins MP.

Children in pain shouldn't have to rely on charities.

We need real commitment from government👇

If being critical of Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine leads to sanctions against me, so be it. I wear it as a badge of honour.
Putin’s barbarity appals most of the world and shames the rest. We must protect our national security from Russia.

Spiking at outdoor festivals in underreported and survivors poorly supported. The @CommonsHomeAffs report I submitted evidence to agrees more must be done to tackle spiking at festivals. @alison_4life
My letter to the Safeguarding Minister outlines actions I think we must take:

I'm continuing to push the government to tackle the menace of illegal and unlicensed quads on our streets. Today, I called for a debate on government time on this so that we can give police the powers they need to seize and destroy nuisance quads.

I welcome the Prime Minister's support for Bradford's bid for UK City of Culture 2025 but empty words mean nothing.

He again promised that the government is still looking at ways to provide Bradford with High-Speed Rail.

Us Bradfordians will believe it, when we see it!

Labour MP Karl Turner recalls the emotional conversations he had with people impacted by P&O Ferries decision to sack 800 staff members with immediate effect.

The MP for Hull East explains how so many people have given their 'entire seafaring careers to P&O Ferries.'

In response to P&O's disgraceful actions in Hull and ports across the country, Hull's 3 MPs have written to @grantshapps. We need urgent action from Government to force P&O and DP World to stand down their replacement crews and private security.

BREAKING 🚨: The captain of The Pride of Hull addressing workers on the ship. They have support right across the city of Hull & the rest of the country and are determined to stay on board for as long as it takes. They should have the full backing of every working person in the UK

Police need the power to seize and destroy problem quads and wearing helmets on these vehicles should be the law. Today I brought my bill to Parliament to bring in measures to tackle nuisance and anti-social quads. WATCH:

Police are asking for information 'as a matter of urgency'. https://www.itv.com/news/calendar/2022-03-14/nine-year-old-girl-goes-missing-from-home-in-west-yorkshire

Quite right @GMBGarySmith. Control of our energy and infrastructure is vital to national security. @GMB_union

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/ben-wallace-urged-back-uk-26352465

We need to break our energy dependency on Russia.

Watch @JudithCummins question to Boris today on how we must up our use of hydrogen as an alternative to Russian gas 🏭

The Osteoporosis APPG just launched its second Inquiry, this time into under-diagnosis in primary care. Leadership of @JudithCummins and Lord Black since last March has led to more mentions of osteoporosis in Parliament than over the previous 8 years #bestmskhealth @RoyalOsteoSoc

Mental health is the most common cause of long-term sickness absence in the UK. We need parity between mental and physical health in the workplace.
Sign the petition to have mental health peer-support a part of every public workplace

Today, the Committee met with MPs from Bradford and Keighley to discuss transport connectivity as part of our Integrated Rail Plan Inquiry.

🦷 We need to end the crisis in NHS dentistry.

👨‍⚕️ Not a week goes by when I don’t have someone contacting me about the lack of NHS dentists. I co-sponsored a debate in parliament and called on the government to act now.

https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/politics/governments-ps50m-fund-to-tackle-dental-appointment-backlog-virtually-unusable-3566227

📺 WATCH: Left under-valued, under-resourced, & under-appreciated for far too long, the Govt is putting the future of NHS dentistry at risk.

The longer the Tories are in power, the longer we wait for an NHS dentist appointment...if we can get one at all.
