Last night, I voted for the Prime Minister in the vote of confidence.
Now that we have the result, it is time to focus our efforts on delivering on what we were elected to do. I remain committed to serving my constituents and focusing on my Ministerial responsibilities at Defra.
The past two years have seen an unprecedented period of global upheaval, with the deadliest pandemic in a century and now war on European soil which has led to surging inflation and rising costs. I continue to support the Prime Minister as we endeavour to lead the international response to the collective issues we face.
We are all very concerned about the cost of living. In my Ministerial role, my immediate focus is on tackling food security at this difficult time. We are working across government and with our international partners to ensure that food continues to reach those who need it most.
