Not quite: I think we should move out ASAP but architects point out we can keep House of Lords & Royal Gallery externally serviced, eliminating need for spending hundreds of millions on temporary replacement chambers & demolishing Richmond House. https://t.co/RaI6LaBoRT

I'm relieved NC28 was withdrawn last night and the House could unite behind the Domestic Abuse Bill. GPs and consultants were deeply concerned over the effects the amendment would have had. Thank you to everyone who got in touch. https://t.co/TG4uRrxBYo

Before the 2010 election we promised to help middle-class families pass their houses on to the next generation. We want more Reagan and Thatcher and less FDR! https://t.co/qUODVlOIGG

Christians are the largest persecuted group in the world. I asked @DominicRaab to make sure the UK's new sanctions system targets individuals and groups that persecute and oppress Christians. #persecutedchristians https://t.co/VNOizkn8Uc

If you tax something you get less of it (just as when you subsidise something you get more of it). We need to radically simplify our tax system for the benefit of working people and small businesses. https://t.co/sSw6IVeLKn

My neighbours @lia_nici @MartinVickers & I keep banging on to ministers so we can get our Cleethorpes-Grimsby-Market Rasen to London direct rail service. We've resorted to bribery and promised to make the minister an honorary Yellowbelly if he gives us our train. #lincolnshire https://t.co/DWr2JzJvxC

With a massive increase in public spending, the work of the @NAOorguk will be all the more important. The Controller & Auditor General must be completely independent when investigating waste in government spending and seeking value for money for the taxpayers. https://t.co/F746EvHWXt

The Lammy Report has pointed out the devastating impact that family breakdown has in terms of crime and anti-social behaviour. The Government needs to commit to strengthening family bonds and the institution of marriage. https://t.co/Is5mza4P9c

I've noticed small shops are doing better as people want to shop more locally. All the more reason why we shouldn't change Sunday trading laws which also help our smaller shops. #KeepSundaySpecial https://t.co/MB1Tn50LvO

England has one of the finest choral traditions in the world. I hope that @OliverDowden will allow our world-class boys' and childrens' choirs like @OratorySchola, who performed for the Pope and the Prince of Wales last year, to rehearse and perform. https://t.co/zuXdnZDr1z

Both my parents lived in France in June 1940 and fled to England. They met at Bletchley Park. On this anniversary I salute Gen. de Gaulle whose portrait hangs in my office. « Car la France n’est pas seule ! Elle n’est pas seule ! » Alliés maintenant et toujours. #18juin1940 https://t.co/9zqJzt0KFU
