I am sorry to hear of the death of Colin Powell. He was an impressive and internationally respected statesman.
He leaves a lasting legacy and I’m sure his life will continue to be an inspiration to many.
Sir David’s death leaves a vacuum that will not and can never be filled.
We will cherish his memory, we will celebrate his legacy and we will never allow those who commit acts of evil to triumph over the democracy and the Parliament that Sir David Amess loved so much. twitter.com/10DowningStree…
The first industrial revolution was powered by steam.
The next industrial revolution will be green, creating new jobs and sustainable growth.
We're driving ahead like a locomotive to deliver on our promise to level up across the United Kingdom.
These new figures are yet more evidence that going green means creating high-quality jobs across the UK.
We are at the forefront of seizing these new opportunities, supported by major government investment and a British zeal for innovation and commerce 🇬�twitter.com/10DowningStree…Ct

Our #PlanForJobs is working.
Unemployment is falling.
Wages are growing.
We will continue to support people to access the skills and opportunities they need, so businesses can fill vacancies in growing industries and help the UK #BuildBackBetter.
Educating girls doesn't just improve lives, it transforms societies.
The UK is a leading supporter of girls' education and I will always campaign to give every girl around the world 12 years of quality education.
From the Brokenshire family: We have set up a memorial page to James where you can share your memories, photographs and donate in his memory to the @Roy_Castle_Lung Cancer Foundation, a charity James supported. Please retweet. jamesbrokenshire.muchloved.com
His fight against cancer was heroic, and it is a measure of his resolve that he came back from a first bout with the disease to serve in government again. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Our thoughts are with Cathy and his family.
Fantastic news that the UAE has become the first Gulf country to commit to Net Zero emissions by 2050.
This is a significant step in tackling climate change and I hope more countries commit to Net Zero ahead of @COP26.

Delighted to welcome Admiral Sir Tony Radakin as the next Chief of the Defence Staff. He's been an outstanding military leader as First Sea Lord and Chief of the Naval Staff and I have every confidence he will be exceptional in his new role. 1/2
We are a step closer to eradicating malaria which kills thousands of children each year.

Hugely welcome news that this new treatment for sickle cell disease – the first in 20 years – is now available on the NHS, saving and improving the lives of thousands of patients in England who suffer from this disease.
So at just the moment it feels like we’ve done enough, that we’ve gotten through, that we can take a rest, we must not stop.
Now is the time to show that our plan will deliver.
And now is the time to finally turn to the future.

I am very saddened to learn of the death of Major General Matt Holmes. My thoughts are with Matt's family and friends at this difficult time, as well as the Royal Marines and Royal Navy who I know will feel this loss keenly.
