Language matters. I have made clear that the word β€˜woman’ should not be removed from key women’s health pages.

I have been assured that the changes highlighted below, as well as others, are being reversed.

Boris Johnson has confirmed the Covid public inquiry's official start date is today ... which just happens to be two days after @CovidJusticeUK threatened the govt with a judicial review over delays

Plenty of messages about the cost of energy bills for @RishiSunak in Canterbury this morning and rather surprisingly some of them were not rude!

Does Nottingham City Council vet the views of all speakers at their civic venues? Or just feminists? They’ve cancelled a lesbian speaker during Pride because they’re signed up to Stonewall. I hope they’re sued for discrimination on basis of belief, as the Forstater case allows.

'It’s just downright embarrassing the Conservatives have had two and we haven’t even had a woman leader in opposition'

In an exclusive interview with Gloria De Piero, Harriet Harman MP says the Labour Party's next leader 'has got to be a woman'

We live in the age of the jabby, confrontational interview & the RMTs, Mick Lynch, has had a few of them.

If you treat people with respect, you can still ask tough questions & get decent answers allowing your audience to make their own minds up

Interest payments on the national debt rose 70% in May to Β£7.6bn (compared with a year earlier) - largely because of the impact of rising inflation on income paid to holders of index-linked gilts (inflation-protected government bonds). More worryingly, this was 49%…

Facebook's owner Meta has removed a large number of accounts posting pictures and videos of upskirting after an investigation by BBC News.
Shadow Safeguarding Minister @jessphillips MP spoke to #BBCBreakfast

Keir Starmer’s EU speech will contradict what everyone knows about him @indypremium @IndyVoices

As Johnson tries to limit pay rises the government controls to 3%, to bring down inflation, ministers have no explanation for why planned rises in the state pension, in universal credit and benefits, which will automatically rise in line with inflation - so by circa 10%…

Exclusive: An epilepsy drug that caused disabilities in thousands of babies, after being prescribed to pregnant women without warnings, could pose a risk to second and even third generation children, @MHRAgovuk has said. 🧡 1/8

Spent the day back in northern France talking to those in the camps. What’s striking, is how similar the mood is to November, just after the catastrophe on the Channel. Fear yes, of the seas and now Rwanda- yet total resolution to make it across, all the same. This is why (🧡)

I am one of almost 100 Labour women MPs who have written to Boris Johnson today urging him to block new rules which threaten the rights of rape survivors to seek counselling before their attackers go on trial. No survivor should ever have to choose between therapy and justice.

Just spoke in the #channel4 debate. I really hope the Government do rethink their plans for privatisation as #Channel4AintBroke and is such an important part of our cultural life.

EU leaders and business executives are planning for the possibility of a major deterioration in trade relations with the UK, writes @faisalislam

Deporting asylum seekers should shame us as a nation.

Our Christian heritage should inspire us to treat vulnerable people with compassion, fairness and justice.

Read today’s letter in @thetimes from myself, @CottrellStephen and all the bishops who serve in @UKHouseofLords:

Deportation of asylum seekers should shame us as a nation.

Our Christian heritage should inspire us to treat vulnerable people seeking asylum with compassion, fairness and justice.

Far too many murdered women whose violent deaths are being highlighted in the tweets of @CountDeadWomen today. Read them and weep πŸ’”

Interesting and busy day in Parliament as we have UQs on #RwandaDeportation, #FoodStrategy and debates and vote on #FreeSpeech coming up...
