Westminster this coming week

Monday sees consideration of the Scotland Bill in committee on the floor of the House of Commons. This means the whole house can debate the individual amendments and parts of the bill in the main chamber, rather than as is usual in a smaller committee. We are doing a similar process with the Europe Bill later in the week, with another opposition day debate after PMQs on Wednesday. I have various constituents coming for meetings or events in parliament this week, notably a climate change rally on Wednesday afternoon in Westminster hall. The parliamentary day always starts with departmental questions and Treasury Questions on Tuesday at 11.30 is always fascinating, although we are all getting used to life without Ed Balls. It is certainly more peaceful.
