Fantastic to attend the opening ceremony of @TfL’s new Elizabeth Line at Paddington station today, alongside Her Majesty The Queen. Long-term investment in UK infrastructure is crucial for growing the economy and providing better transport for generations to come.

Fantastic that over 1 million more disabled people are in employment compared to 5 years ago. We're investing £1.3bn in employment support for disabled people and championing inclusive recruitment through our Disability Confident Scheme. This is levelling up.
Today, the Government has reached and exceeded its goal, set in 2017, to see an additional one million more disabled people in work by 2027 New data released today shows that 1.3m more disabled people are in employment, compared to five years ago gov.uk/government/news/gover…

Great news that the unemployment rate is at its lowest since 1974. We know that work is the best way for people to support their families, so we remain focused on supporting more people into jobs and filling vacancies through schemes like Way to Work, and growing the economy.

I am backing our brave police by making it easier for officers to use stop & search powers to drive down knife crime, arrest more suspects, & seize more weapons, with over 50,000 removed since 2019, ultimately saving more lives. We are taking action to make our streets safer 👇🏽

We must have a functioning Assembly and Executive, so it can deliver for people in Northern Ireland. There is no substitute for strong local leadership on issues like schools, health and the economy. Stormont must get back to work.

Thank you for your bravery Jake, it would have taken huge courage to come out and you will be an inspiration to many both on and off the pitch.

Today I’m visiting Northern Ireland with a clear message: the UK government will play its part to ensure political peace & democracy, but the parties must come together to restore power sharing and tackle cost of living pressures. My article in @BelTel: belfasttelegraph.co.uk/opini…

It’s great that @JBrokenshire’s memory is being honoured at @DavenantFS where he started his education – an education which he built on because he was a brilliant man, a brilliant and successful lawyer and then a brilliant and successful politician. eleanorlaing.com/news/broken…

Welcome news that lung cancer patients could be given more time with loved ones through a life-extending drug on the NHS. We’re funding our NHS to deliver life saving treatments and tackle the covid backlogs, so it can continue delivering excellent care to those who need it.
👏🏽 @NHSEngland is pioneering innovative treatments to give cancer patients the best care and more time with loved ones. We must keep improving outcomes for cancer patients and our upcoming 10-Year Cancer Plan will set out how we will lead Europe. telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/05…

It was an honour to welcome Nazanin, Richard and Gabriella to Downing Street today. We discussed the UK’s work to secure the release of unfairly detained nationals in Iran and I commended Nazanin for her incredible bravery during her ordeal.
