On Thursday evening I spoke to Channel 4 News regarding the disastrous attempt made over the past few months to train Libyan army recruits at a British Army base in Bassingbourn in South Cambridgeshire.

Several years ago the UK pledged to train up to 2000 hand picked Libyan army cadets as part of a G8 initiative to rebuild Libya's institutions in the wake of the revolution that overthrew Muammar Gaddafi. The first 300 arrived in the UK in June, however the programme fast descended into chaos with widespread discipline and even criminal behaviour from out of control recruits.

With the programme eventually cancelled this week following the revelation that 5 cadets had been charged with sexual offences, I spoke to Channel 4 alongside the local MP Andrew Lansley on what went wrong, why, and where we go from here.

On what was my last, and busy day in Westminster before the Party conference recess, I was able to take a few minutes out to answer a few questions from eager pupils from Litchard Primary. Visiting Parliament for an equally busy of tours and workshops, I was asked a number of insightful questions about how I spend my day, how often I go to the House of Lords, and what I liked best about being an MP.

 It seemed pupils were most impressed (as most people are) by the massive gold throne that sits in the House of Lords. The children were also given the opportunity to hold their very own vote, deciding between: swimming pools for every school in Wales, or banning smoking. By a slender margin, but most conscientiously they opted for banning smoking.

Interview in BBC Wales Sunday Supplement on events around shooting down of flight MH17 over Ukraine.

The callous behaviour of the Russian backed separatist militias in blocking access to the crash site, removing bodies and probably removing the black boxes tells you all you need to know about the moral basis for their actions.

Putin's refusal to disavow them also speaks volumes.

An inquiry by the Welsh Affairs Committee in Parliament has been exploring the potential impacts development in the shale gas industry in Wales will have on local communities, from both an economic and environmental perspective.

The inquiry concluded that shale gas represents an opportunity for Wales but that this must not be at the expense of Wales's natural environment.
