This was another week of frantic activity in Parliament. However, as has become very famil-iar to Members, our work was once again overshadowed by the Brexit process, both inside the House and developments further afield.

The Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union has run into much criticism in the House this week from all sides. The sectoral analysis impact assessments on the impact of Brexit on the UK now appear either not to have been carried out or to have had so little depth of study that they have little validity.

Just when this seemed to be brewing into yet another controversy for the Government, news from Brussels took over. Despite the best efforts of the DUP, the Government and EU now appear to agreed on enough to move talks forward. No doubt this will lead yet more debate in the House throughout the coming months.

Another busy week in Parliament saw the continuation of the Budget debates and the first test of the new Defence Minister at the dispatch box.

The important issues are being thrown at Parliament thick and fast at the moment, so much so though that it has become difficult to even get into debates. The Chamber is so often packed with Members each wanting to make a contribution that there is simply not the time for everyone to have their say. The enthusiasm to make a valuable contribution is of course great to see, but it does mean that Members have to be careful with their time and pick their moments to speak. Without careful selection of when to intervene it may mean waiting in the Chamber for as much as 6 hours in order to make a 2 minute intervention.

Elsewhere, I chaired another meeting on suicide and self harm prevention and the country witnesses the 100th anniversary of the RAF, a moment in which we can take the chance to recognise the difficult and hard work the RAF do for the UK

This was yet another busy week in Parliament. Third day of debate over the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill saw another long debate, followed the next day by the Budget.

In the brief breaks we had in between these long and important sessions in Parliament. A de-bate was held in Westminster Hall on Britain’s Amphibious Capability. This was a debate I am pleased to say had cross party consensus that MPs can no longer sit by and see the Government degrade our military capability.

Further to this, I Chaired a meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Reserves and Cadets in which I was pleased to hear from the Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff (Reserves and Ca-dets) on the progress of the plans to reform and rebuild our Reserve Forces. As well as this, on Wednesday I chaired a Kidney Symposium aimed at easing access to organs for transplant. This meeting was attended by numerous charities as well as NHS Leeds Kidney department.
