Westminster this week - the Budget dominates but lots of other things happening in Westminster

On Wednesday the Chancellor sets out the Budget that implements the Conservative May 2015 Manifesto. We will then debate the Budget contents for a week in the Commons. In the lead up to that time we have to finish the debate on the Scotland Bill today until 10.30pm and an Opposition day debate tomorrow.

I also have a variety of other meetings this week with constituents, journalists, Oxfam representatives and a joint meeting between local MPs with the Chief Exec of the Northumbria NHS Trust, Jim Mackey. I will blog about all of these things later this week.
