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.
