The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill returned to the Commons for the final time this week. The Bill has now passed, but it was still only a first step on the long legislative road ahead, with at least three more Brexit Bills left to process.

Elsewhere, this was a mixed week for Defence issues. I attended the annual Land Warfare Conference in London, which was a great opportunity to hear thoughts, opinions and goals on strategy, and on how we can develop our Armed Forces to meet the threats of the future. The House also held an informative and instructive debate on NATO and the value the Alliance holds for Britain, for which the turnout and input from Members was encouraging.

However, speculation in the press about the Prime Minister’s apparent unease in committing to extra Defence spending, as well as signals from the Chancellor that money promised for Defence may be on hold, are less than welcome developments.

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.
