Westminster / Northumberland this week - boundary reviews, second reading of the technical and further education bill, and more

I am in Westminster for 3 days this week, with debates on the FE Bill, constituents coming to Westminster, discussions on northern transport policy, PMQs, and more. All this week are the North East independent boundary commission hearings. They affect the Hexham constituency and wider Northumberland a lot, and I am hoping to be at the Darlington evidence session on Thursday. I will be making the case that the proposed changes, in particular the partitioning of Ponteland, and the surrounding villages of Ogle, Whalton and Stannington are very wrong. More details on the proposed national changes are here:
