The week turned out busier that it first appeared. The lack of large legislation moving through the House lulled us all into a false sense of security. However, the time has allowed me to focus on other and equally important issues.
I had the opportunity to speak at a symposium on suicide. A very productive meeting which allowed experts in the field to come together and discuss ways in which we can improve our systems and increase prevention and help for those who need it.
On the Defence side of things, the Secretary of State came before the Defence Committee, allowing us to dig deeper into the Governments plans for our Armed Forces and our place within NATO. A very useful session for myself as I head off to Poland this weekend for a meeting of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
