I am only in the House 3 days this week before coming home for a packed 4 days up north. But there is much happening with the Care Bill and other legislation going through parliament. I have plenty of Home Office work, but my main constituency meeting is the meet with the company EE on Tuesday to discuss alternative phone and broadband providers in hard to reach areas like Hedley and Kielder. We are spending so much time trying to improve such provision, and looking at alternative providers who can provide local solutions. I know it is almost the number one issue for so many people.
My intention is to come home Thursday first thing and I have a multitude of meetings across Tynedale over the rest of the week.
