Today Kuwait marks 30 years since its liberation from occupation. We remember those who gave their lives fighting bravely for freedom, including many British service personnel. I send my best wishes to our Kuwaiti friends as they celebrate their 60th National Day 🇰🇼🇬🇧
Welcome news that rough sleeping has gone down by 43% since 2018 - but we won't rest until everyone in this country has a place to call home.
We are continuing to work with councils & charities, providing £750m for programmes over the next year to end rough sleeping.
I’m from the British Indian community and I’m going to get the vaccine when called to do so.
We need to protect ourselves from this deadly virus.
Let’s all urge our communities to do the same.

Hugely encouraging to see this cross party initiative led by councillors @gurjitbains and @PauletteHamilto sharing the vital message of the importance of getting the vaccine. Vaccines will save thousands of lives. #TakeTheVaccine
We’re very proud to announce that 600,000 doses of #COVAX vaccines, the first to be shipped and delivered, have now arrived in Ghana. This is a truly momentous day, and a major milestone reached for a global solution to this global pandemic:
All countries need access to coronavirus vaccines, so it is fantastic to see the first doses from COVAX arriving in Ghana today.
I'm proud that the UK is one of the largest contributors to COVAX and that we will share the majority of any future surplus vaccines with the scheme.
Over 18 million people across the United Kingdom have had their first jab.
We are aiming to offer a jab to all adults aged 50 or older and those who are at higher risk due to underlying health conditions by 15 April and every adult by the end of July.
When schools re-open on 8 March, I want to make sure no child is left behind as a result of the learning they have lost over the past year.
A new £700m package of catch-up funding will help teachers support their pupils as they return to the classroom.
Today I chaired a @UN Security Council session on climate and security.
Together with Sir David Attenborough, I warned of the need to cut global emissions to net zero and help vulnerable countries adapt to climate change.
Read our remarks here:
Yesterday I set out our four-step roadmap to ease restrictions across England and provide a route back to a more normal way of life.
On Monday 8th March, schools and colleges across England will reopen, and teaching in classrooms can start again.
