The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill returned to the Commons this week. Packed into two intense days of debate were perhaps the most important deliberations in Parliament since the Second World War and many unanswered questions remain unanswered. The only clarity to emerge from the de-bates was that the House is sharply divided on how to proceed and what the way forward looks like.

Debate will return to the Commons once the Lords have considered the Government’s changes. However, it is now obvious to everyone involved that it was always too simplistic to think Brexit was ever going to be merely a matter of walking away. Our mutual inter-relationship with Europe is much deeper than people were advised of at the time of the Referendum.

The two days of debate are worth exploring and I would recommend you follow the hyperlinks be-low and read the arguments in detail. The most worrying aspect of the two days was the total lack of clarity in relation to the governments plans for and desire out come from Brexit.

This week was a final chance to draw breath before the return of the European Union With-drawal Bill to the House of Commons next week.

The steady flow of briefings and information regarding the Withdrawal Bill which peppered the week provided a good grounding whilst allowing me to pursue other important matters. I had the opportunity to attend and host several important meetings on Defence, and a closed session of the Defence Committee was an ideal time to update Members on my recent visits with the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.

I also Chaired a Delegated legislation Committee on Immigration and the detention of vulnerable persons, another opportunity to reflect on the way the Country is run and is viewed by the world.

Where have we got to with Brexit?

Things are changing rapidly as the Brexit process moves forward, with new analyses and issues emerging almost weekly. By the time you read this, I am sure there will be new information and developments about the UK’s exit from the EU. However, this newsletter aims to provide an overview of where we are at the moment.

It has been a tumultuous 23 months since the EU referendum and astonishingly we still have a lack of clarity over the Government’s negotiating position and how they will deliver their so called "bespoke", "deep and special" future relationship with the EU.

We know the Government have set out a number of "red lines" on areas they do not wish to be party to. However, it is virtually impossible to reconcile their rhetoric with the realities of issues such as pro-tecting against a hard Irish border and leaving the Customs Union.
