A tumultuous week in Parliament has seen the Government’s foreign and domestic policies come under attack. The Government suffered a humiliating defeat in the Lords over their Brexit Bill. Tory rebels voting with the opposition to force a debate on staying in the Cus-toms Union. The debacle over the Windrush Generation has only added to the Government’s woes, making the rhetoric around "Global Britain" look quite empty and hollow. Rev-elations into Council cuts hitting Labour areas hardest only made a bad week worse for the Government.

The airstrikes in Syria over the weekend caused plenty of controversy in the House. Although a legitimate case can be made either way in regard to taking action, many Members have been rightly concerned of the lack of consultation with Parliament.

I have spent the week in the Balkans with the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. This visit gave Members of the Alliance the perfect opportunity to further the network building and engagement in the region and to monitor the progress the area has made since the wars which ravaged the Countries so recently. A task in which British delegates can play vital role.

As you will be aware Defence policy is one of my Parliamentary responsibilities. I remain on both the House of Commons Defence Select Committee (HCDC) and the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. I am the Chair of the Labour Party Backbench Defence Group and Chair the RAF and the Reserves and Cadet Forces All Party Groups. The eye of the UK Defence community is currently focused sharply on the UK’s defence budget, our foreign policy and defence strategy to face old and new strategic threats. The possible weakening of our security links with Europe following Brexit is a further concern. The UK’s main outlet for Defence since the Second World War has been NATO. With our Defence Budget under strain, and the US administration’s confusing messages and our departure from the EU this update will, I hope, help to clarify the problems we face. Calls for an increase in defence funding has taken on a greater urgency following the chemical attack in Salisbury.

This week has been very much focused on Foreign Affairs. The solidarity shown by our allies and partners around the globe was a much welcome development in the on going tensions with Russia over the attack in Salisbury. In times such as this, unity is important to show that we will not be bullied and cajoled against our will. These actions had broad cross party support in the House.

With 2018 being the 100 Anniversary of the RAF it was a pleasure to welcome Air Officer Wales and the Assistant Chief of the Air Staff into Parliament to give a briefing to Welsh MPs on what is happening in Wales to celebrate and how they can get involved.

Celebrations are happening throughout the year and I would urge anyone who can to play that part in something in their local community to show their support for the RAF.
