As seems to be routine now, Brexit rumbled on in the background of everything we in Parliament do. The chance to debate the Customs Union once again was, however, welcome. It is important that, whatever your view, we have a full and frank debate on the future direction of the Country.

Foreign Affairs dominated my week , hearing evidence of the contribution made by our brave service personnel in confronting ISIS in the middle East with the Defence Committee. I also attended a meeting with the Russian Ambassador who made some frankly frightful claims about the Salisbury attacks. The next day I met representatives from Lithuania and heard of their constant unease with regard to Russia. It is these kinds of experiences which demonstrate that it is more important than ever that the UK sticks close by its allies and presents a united front to anyone who would do us harm.

The week took on a backwards structure as Parliament did not sit on Monday, but the House was host to another sitting Friday.

The Government has been left reeling from the defeats the Lords have inflicted on it’s Brex-it Bill, but the Commons are yet to see the return of any of the related legislation to the House. As such this week gave Members a brief respite to concentrate on other important issues.

I had the pleasure to Chair two important meetings in my role as the Chair of Labour’s back-bench Defence group. The first highlighting the need for a more comprehensive and long term approach to security strategy. The second was an in depth presentation on the security questions in the high north and Arctic and Britain’s role and interests in this area.

As well as these meetings, I attend the launch of a new report on Parkinsons and Mental Health.

The Local Elections saw a lot of focus outside of Parliament this week. However, despite the attention elsewhere, some important developments occurred in the House as well.

The Government’s continued failings over the Windrush scandal further piled the pressure on. The new Home Secretary receiving an immediate baptism of fire as Members continued to pursue answers.

The continuing indecision from the Government over what our future relationship with the EU will look like post Brexit is bring further derision to an already flawed negotiating position. Members on all sides of the House are becoming increasingly fed up with the lacklustre nature of the approach. The amount of Parliamentary time taken by the process is staggering, for a glimpse of the time an effort needed for Brexit in Parliament see here.
