My week

I had expected the EU Withdrawal Bill to be starting Committee Stage this week, but the chaos at the heart of the Government appears to have delayed it. Instead we’re debating another piece of Brexit legislation today, the Nuclear Safeguards Bill, on which I’m winding up for Labour. I’ll reiterate our support for continued participation in Euratom – you can read an article I wrote with Keir Starmer in July about the issue here. Before that, I’ll be meeting with consumer organisations to hear their concerns about Brexit.

Nuclear safeguards, migration, World Week and, of course, Brexit – some of my week ahead

Parliament is back today after the conference recess, during which I’ve held 40 community events seeking constituents views. This week I’ll start to pull together all the comments from the hundreds of people who joined in the Big Conversation. I’ll also be preparing for the EU Withdrawal Bill on which I’ll be leading as part of Labour’s Shadow Brexit team, when it goes into committee stage next Tuesday. This afternoon I'll be in the Commons Chamber for Theresa May's report on Brexit, in which she's apparently trying to turn the attention away from the chaos in her Government, which is paralysing the negotiations, by blaming the EU. 

Women’s pensions, international students, mental health and fracking – some of my week ahead
