This was yet another busy week in Parliament. Third day of debate over the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill saw another long debate, followed the next day by the Budget.
In the brief breaks we had in between these long and important sessions in Parliament. A de-bate was held in Westminster Hall on Britain’s Amphibious Capability. This was a debate I am pleased to say had cross party consensus that MPs can no longer sit by and see the Government degrade our military capability.
Further to this, I Chaired a meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Reserves and Cadets in which I was pleased to hear from the Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff (Reserves and Ca-dets) on the progress of the plans to reform and rebuild our Reserve Forces. As well as this, on Wednesday I chaired a Kidney Symposium aimed at easing access to organs for transplant. This meeting was attended by numerous charities as well as NHS Leeds Kidney department.
