It was a short week in Parliament as the November recess began on Wednesday. Despite this, there were plenty of debates taking place, including over the payment of £1.7bn to the EU which the Chancellor claimed to have negotiated a deal on. There were also questions to the Justice Secretary and the Communities and Local Government Secretary.

In the last week before the one-week November recess, Parliament was as busy as ever. Questions were posed to the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Prime Minister, as well as a statement by the Home Secretary on the current state of the wide-ranging inquiry into child abuse. I was able to ask a question about the “toilet tax” to the Leader of the House in Business Questions  on Thursday, and attended meetings of the Defence Committee.

On Thursday evening I spoke to Channel 4 News regarding the disastrous attempt made over the past few months to train Libyan army recruits at a British Army base in Bassingbourn in South Cambridgeshire.

Several years ago the UK pledged to train up to 2000 hand picked Libyan army cadets as part of a G8 initiative to rebuild Libya's institutions in the wake of the revolution that overthrew Muammar Gaddafi. The first 300 arrived in the UK in June, however the programme fast descended into chaos with widespread discipline and even criminal behaviour from out of control recruits.

With the programme eventually cancelled this week following the revelation that 5 cadets had been charged with sexual offences, I spoke to Channel 4 alongside the local MP Andrew Lansley on what went wrong, why, and where we go from here.
