As we look forward to hosting #COP26 it was a privilege to speak at today’s @Climate_Action_ Transition Summit 🚗✈️ Transport is at the very heart of the climate change debate and I want to work with industry to drive decarbonisation on the global stage 🌍 #ClimateActionLive https://t.co/SrXSbpBrp1

From Jan to March, there were 2,015 more electric vehicle chargepoints across the UK – a 10% increase on the previous quarter❗️📈 With more chargepoints per 100 miles of key strategic road than any country in Europe, we're in the driving seat of the EV revolution⚡️🚗 https://t.co/5ZPyK8LtcP

We’ve sponsored important new guidance from @BSI_UK to prevent vehicles like vans, lorries, buses & coaches being used in acts of terror. This vital work will help us keep the British public safe & prevent tragedies. https://t.co/5PQXuF1Tmh

We are working closely with industry to understand, mitigate and resolve issues on these trains as quickly as possible. Disruption is likely to continue for some time to come and I ask passengers to check before they travel. (2/3)

Hitachi Trains: After cracks were identified on the chassis of some Hitachi trains this morning, rigorous checks being undertaken before they can return to the network. Disappointing to see significant disruption for rail passengers, but safety must be the priority. (1/3)

This evening I announced we can make the first tentative steps towards unlocking international travel and start looking outwards again - something we've all worked so hard, as a nation, to achieve. We will slowly, but surely, open up the travel industry and rebuild our economy. https://t.co/WL4xetP0rz
