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.
