The collapse of Carillion is a potential disaster for 250 workers at their city centre offices and raises concerns over current and future pension arrangements. I’ve already spoken to the Minister who has given me assurances on the position of Carillion staff for the foreseeable future and I will continue to press their case.

Parliament has returned today after the Christmas break and there will probably be Government Statements or Urgent Questions on issues that have come up over the last couple of weeks. If there’s a chance, I’ll be challenging the appointment of Toby Young to the Board of the Office for Students.

Parliament breaks up for Christmas Recess on Thursday, but there are some key debates on Brexit before then. I’ll be leading for Labour’s frontbench again on Wednesday for the final day of the Committee stage of the EU Withdrawal Bill. This week’s amendments cover a wide range of issues, including economic impact assessments, on which a lot of people have written to me, and Government proposals to put the exit date into law.
