Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day is an important opportunity for the nation to acknowledge and celebrate the work of our service personnel and their families, the young cadets who are the future and the veterans who have given so much to defend our country. I am proud that it was a Labour government that introduced Armed Forces Day in 2006 and this year the national celebration will be held in Llandudno, north Wales on Saturday 30 June.

Belarus

Belarus is a country of contradictions. When the IPU delegation arrived in Belarus and we made our way to its capital, Minsk, I was surprised not to be greeted by a drab, dour and austere country, redolent of what I experienced in so many east European countries after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Union flag and EU flags

Next week, the House of Commons will vote on the amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill which have been made by the House of Lords. Most of these amendments are positive in that they reduce the damage caused by the Government’s cack-handed approach to Brexit.

House of Commons

My report on business at Westminster this month has to start with the momentous vote in the Commons on 13 December. MPs ensured they will have a meaningful vote on the final Brexit deal, a decision which has been described by commentators, as “Parliament taking control of the EU withdrawal process”, and by myself as a “great victory for democracy”.

Keeping our local pubs afloat

Keeping our pubs afloat was the title of an event I recently attended in Westminster hosted by the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group.

The Group, which was founded in 1993, has amongst its aims the promotion of the wholesomeness and enjoyment of beer and the unique role of pubs in the UK, and their value to tourism; to broaden recognition of the contribution of brewing and pubs to employment and to the UK economy; to promote understanding of the social responsibility exercised by the brewing industry and to promote a positive future for beer and the pub.

League Against Cruel Sports - animal welfare

I strongly believe that the humane treatment of all animals should be a hallmark of any civilised society and it is important to send out a strong and powerful message that animal cruelty must stop.

Brexit

Across the country, the general election produced a result which many did not expect. But what has not changed is the fact that Brexit will dominate the political agenda for the foreseeable future.
