This week was almost entirely focused on the important process of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. The two marathon debates over Tuesday and Wednesday were wide ranging and argued passionately on all sides. This will hopefully mean that the Bill is put into in proper shape in order to avoid chaos and confusion.

However, during these times it is important to not lose sight of the many issues Parliamentarians are elected to the House to address. With this in mind, I have also spent the week pursuing other issues, such as suicide prevention, bereavement support and asking questions on Kidney patient care and the hormone pregnancy test report published this week. As well as this, I met with Emmaus, an organisation helping homeless and ex-homeless people to turn their lives around.

This week was also an important one for the Defence Select Committee as we reintroduced the Arctic Sub-Committee as well as scrutinising the Government’s implementation of the 2015 Security and Defence review.

In contrast to last week, it has been a relatively short and sharp week in Parliament. There were only two sitting days this week, Monday and Tuesday. These days saw an intense flurry of activity before a short recess in which Members returned to their Constituencies in order to focus on local matters. However, with the coming to light of the Paradise Papers over the weekend, and the fact that the Government does not seem to be able to escape controversy at the moment, all meant that the two day sitting was very intense.

This short week has seen the Government come under further strain and pressure. the looming prospect of another Cabinet reshuffle is further undermining the Prime Minister and weakening still the precarious position she found herself in after the General Election.

It has been a busy and full week in Parliament, the House sitting on a Friday as well as it’s usual Monday to Thursday programme. The week proved to be rather eventful. The opposition were able to corner the Government by using an old procedure to compel the Government to act on their opposition day motion by making the vote binding. Further to this the week saw the debating of two Private Members Bills. The Bill to support Seni’s Law in relation to restraint of people with mental health problems passed unopposed. The Votes at 16 Bill was talked out so fell. All in all the week has been something of a triumph for the pro-cess of Parliament, showing that the function of the institution is still going strong and prospering. This was all done with the background of a shake up in the Government following the resignation of Sir Michael Fallon and the appointment of the former chief Whip Gavin Williamson to the now vacant position of Defence Minister.
