Westminster this Week

Multiple debates in parliament, meetings with many constituents from Bob Hull to Tony Gates, of Northumberland National Park, and lesser Westminster Hall debates on everything from Syrian Refugees to Regional Airports make this a very busy 3 days in Westminster this week. I am also trying to meet with the team from Nissan who are visiting parliament, again having further meetings on railways in our region. Monday night will finish around midnight so it is a 16 hour day for me tomorrow, and Tuesday will end at 10pm I suspect.
A lot of this week will be taken up with the Emergency legislation which will be brought in to continue to require phone and internet companies to log records of customer calls, texts and internet use. This has played havoc with my diary, as this is on top of everything that was previously booked in, so apologies if things are a bit manic this week.
Our work experience in Westminster for this week is Rachel, who hails from the Belsay area.
