An update from your MP

January 19th 2021

As MP for West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly I am writing to keep you updated on the latest developments and help available. Prime Ministers and Presidents from the world’s leading democracies will enjoy the warmest of Cornish welcomes when they meet at Carbis Bay in June for the G7 Summit.

The G7 (the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the USA and the EU) will be joined by the leaders of Australia, India and South Korea for the event which is to be held from 11-13 June at the Carbis Bay Estate with delegates also staying at the Tregenna Castle Resort and other locations in neighbouring St Ives.

As well as giving us the opportunity to showcase the very best of Cornwall on a global stage, I am particularly pleased that the Government has committed to working closely with Cornish leaders and institutions to ensure that Cornwall reaps the benefits of hosting the G7 for years to come.

I said in my first ever election address that ‘we must not accept being the end of the line – we can be the start of something good!’ I still believe this and we must not miss the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy for West Cornwall.

In a year of recovery from Covid and a focus on how the world will cut harmful emissions (COP26 is also in Britain this year) we could not have a better time to host the world’s leaders for the G7 Summit.

Cornwall is already a leading player in green innovation and this summit will enable us to show how rural areas can play a key role in creating a decarbonised, digitised world fit for the future.

Kind regards,
Derek Thomas – MP
