Today, as Chair of the #APPG for Viet Nam I was pleased to join the @CommonsSpeaker to meet the Chair of the Vietnamese National Assembly and delegation. We had a very worthwhile discussion on a number of important issues. #Friendship @Ambassador_Long @UKinVietnam @GarethWardUK

On Monday, it was great to join @Keir_Starmer and other @UKLabour colleagues to welcome to Parliament Wakefield’s new MP @simonlightwood. What a fantastic by-election result it was too.

Great to catch up with the #Gwent Association of Retired Headteachers in Parliament this week alongside @RuthNewportWest @NickTorfaen @WayneDavid_MP & @BlaenauGwentMP.

Lots of interesting questions & discussions had - and we were of course all on our best behaviour!

Pleasure to be at an impressive ‘talk’ on the great Jim Griffiths by Prof. D. Ben Rees. Introduction given by Lord John Morris, who was in Parliament with Jim. @NiaGriffithMP @HouseofCommons

Today on #ArmedForcesDay, we celebrate the special service our UK Forces personnel, veterans, and their families give to our country.

From helping Britain through Covid to keeping us safe and protecting our NATO allies, Labour is deeply proud of you. Thank you.

Very pleased to join the @ArmedForcesDay Ceremony in Caerphilly. Delighted to see the @PoppyLegion formally received the Freedom of the Borough. Excellent singing by pupils of @Plasyfelin Primary. @CaerphillyCBC

It was a real pleasure to play with the @RoyalAirForce Salon Orchestra tonight in the @HouseofCommons. What a tremendous group of musicians! Afterwards we heard a great briefing from @ChiefofAirStaff Sir Mike Wigston.

It was brilliant today for @NickTorfaen and myself to meet in the @HouseofCommons the pupils from @cwmffrwdoer Primary in Torfaen and @NantYParcSchool in Senghenydd, Caerphilly. We had a really good chat and they asked us some great questions.

Excellent reception tonight in office of @Keir_Starmer for Britain’s Armed Forces and Veterans, ahead of @ArmedForcesDay Great to see a good Welsh contingent! @labourforces @AngelaRayner @JohnHealey_MP

Exclusive: No.10 plans to ease restrictions on City bosses' pay - while preaching 'wage restraint' to everyone else.


Really beautiful displays in the Caerphilly Flower Festival. Jayne and I visited Van Road United Reform Church, Windsor Rd Presbyterian Church, & Caerphilly Library. @CaerphillyLib @CaerphillyCBC

Yesterday, a number of British MPs and Peers met a delegation from the #Ukrainian Parliament in the @HouseofCommons. Strong cross-party solidarity. Organised well by the @BGIPU

Labour owes a lot to Wales. Wales has produced outstanding Labour politicians from Aneurin Bevan to Neil Kinnock to the current first Minister @MarkDrakeford and many more.

Thank you @JoStevensLabour @WayneDavid_MP and @Keir_Starmer for this fantastic event! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Yesterday, it was my great privilege to be asked to say a few words at the ‘Celebration’ of Hywel Francis’ life in the ‘Palace of Culture’ in Onllwyn. A good friend and a great historian, adult educator and socialist. @dafyddfrancis @RobHumphreys77

Good to have Craig Edmunds of @WellDrawnBrewCo of Bedwas, Caerphilly in the @HouseofCommons Strangers’ Bar. The ‘New Wave’ summer ale is now available. And it’s excellent!

Wonderful result for Wales in the big game. But feel sorry for the Ukrainians. #WALUKR 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Jayne and I were pleased to visit the Senior Citizens #PlatinumJubilee Tea in Gilfach, Bargoed. Great to meet 3 young “runners” who did a good job helping people. But not sure what I’ll do with the cardboard cutout of the Queen which we won in the auction. @BargoedTC @cazjule

Brilliant #Jubilee Party at the Caerphilly Miners Centre for the Community @CaerphillyMCC. Lovely atmosphere! @CaerphillyMVC were on top form. @JeffCuthbert @Katheri15861158

Wow what a lovely afternoon at our Garden Party.
Many thanks to @WayneDavid_MP @hef4caerphilly @BedwasHall for attending.
#BTMCC #Community #QueensJubilee #BTMarea

Wonderful #Jubilee Party in Bedwas, Caerphilly. In fantastic memorial garden. Brilliantly organised by BTM Community Council and Cllr Chris Morgan. #BTMCC

Following the PM's statement on the #SueGray report, I asked whether No.10 received the report yesterday & requested changes, which were made. I was referring to the gathering in the No. 10 flat on 13/11/20. The PM replied that "he" received the report this morning. Interesting!

“We’re Back”. That was the message from the Ladies in @CaerphillyChoir. Great concert tonight with soloists Lizzie Rhian Metcalf and Antoinette Davies. In aid of Children’s Wales Air Ambulance @ChildrensAirAmb

Pleased to attend the drop-in session organised by the #APPG on Sodium Valproate and the National Campaign. The families affected must have justice. @CatSmithMP @ValproateUK

Threats to our security are growing and diversifying. But Ministers are still:

➡️Not halting cuts of 10000 troops
➡️Delaying a modern warfighting division until 2030
➡️Not publishing a resilience strategy
➡️Still cutting £1.7Bn from MOD spending
➡️Failing to fix procurement

Earlier today, I asked the SoS for Wales if he was concerned that the Shared Prosperity Fund would shift resources from the Valleys to more prosperous parts of Wales. The reply was rudely interrupted by the PM, but the SoS disagreed with me. Tories never admit what they are doing

Last week I was delighted to give my (Welsh) support to @christianaid Week at an event in Westminster. It was good to meet @JohnSentamu again after quite a few years!

In today's debate on #NATO and international security, I made the point that the defence of our country should be something that 'unites' the whole nation, as is the case in #Sweden.

Very grateful to HM Ambassadors @MelSimmonsFCDO @UKinUkraine & @AnnaClunes @ukinpoland for detailed briefing for MPs/Peers chaired by @WayneDavid_MP on the impacts of #PutinsWar in #Ukraine️ 🇺🇦 & the support being provided to its neighbour #Poland 🇵🇱 with thanks to @FCDOGovUK

@WayneDavid_MP @LindsayHoyle_MP @JanetDaby Thank you so much for all your efforts Wayne. In our meeting last year you said you hoped to meet under better circumstances, and that is exactly what happened 🙂

It was a real pleasure to attend the event in the Speaker’s House @LindsayHoyle_MP welcoming home Anoosheh Ashoori @lilika49. Anoosheh movingly thanked people for their support and urged us not to forget those still held in Iran. @JanetDaby

Really positive @HouseofCommons drop-in event today. Excellent discussions, interest & engagement. Grateful to @WayneDavid_MP, @redditchrachel & @carolinenokes for co-hosting & sharing how #Migraine has impacted their lives. @MigraineTrust

Pleased to co-host a drop-in session with @MigraineTrust in @HouseofCommons. So important to increase awareness of the condition. Other co-hosts are @redditchrachel and @carolinenokes

The attacks on mourners at the funeral of the journalist, Shireen Abu Aqla, have shocked the world.

The Labour Party unequivocally condemns the violence by Israeli forces.

Out thoughts are with Shireen’s family and all those who mourn her death.

Good to see @dssmithgroup from Caerphilly win the Recycling category in the ‘Paper Industry Gold Awards’. @RuthNewportWest, Shadow Minister, presented the award. Organised by Confederation of Paper Industries.@policyforpaper

Pleased to meet the Commonwealth War Graves Commission @CWGC during War Graves Week. Important for people to discover and learn about our communities’ world war heritage. #WGW

Good to meet the ‘Street Pastors’ in the Twyn, Caerphilly. Celebrating 10 years of supporting and helping people in the town.

So pleased to be able to support the fantastic ‘Fund Raising Fayre’ for #Ukraine in Machen, Caerphilly. People were so generous in so many ways. @BritishRedCross

Jayne and I were delighted to bump into @RhydianDaf doing his @stjohnambulance duties at today’s brilliant ‘Caerphilly Food Festival’. @CaerphillyCBC

Warmest congratulations to @WelshLabour Anne Broughton-Pettit on winning seat from Plaid Cymru in the ‘Morgan Jones Ward’ of Caerphilly. For the first time in many years, the Ward now has 3 Labour councillors. Morgan Jones would have been delighted! @pritchar13

Got to tell it as it is! Tonight’s response to our @WelshLabour candidates @McConAmanda & Chris Morgan in Lower Graig-y-Rhacca, Caerphilly, was fantastic. Not one, no, not one LibDem. and only a couple of Tories (Plaid aren’t standing). Huge Labour support. #LocalElections2022

Great to be campaigning this morning in Hengoed, Caerphilly. Huge support for @WelshLabour and our excellent candidates. Rhiannon is full of commitment and enthusiasm! Plaid is losing support. #LocalElections2022
