President @JoeBiden rejoining the Paris Agreement is hugely positive news. In the year we host @COP26 in Glasgow, I look forward to working with our US partners to do all we can to safeguard our planet.
Congratulations to @JoeBiden on being sworn in as President of the United States and to @KamalaHarris on her historic inauguration. America’s leadership is vital on the issues that matter to us all, from climate change to COVID, and I look forward to working with President Biden.

We have now begun vaccinating over 70s and the clinically extremely vulnerable.
Vaccines are given to those most vulnerable to COVID-19 first.
Our vaccine programme continues to accelerate to protect the most vulnerable.
But right now our NHS remains under pressure.
So please, stay at home.
We’re providing a £23 million package to support fishing exporters who have been most adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges adjusting to new export requirements.
We are delivering a total of 1.3 million devices to schools across the country, supporting the young people who need it most to continue their learning remotely💻
The NHS is under significant pressure in all parts of the country.
Please, stay at home.
We're making good progress with our vaccination plan, with over 4 million people now having received their first dose.
Thank you to everyone involved in this great national effort to protect the most vulnerable from the virus. We will beat this together 🇬🇧
