Westminster this week - devolution dominates as the remaining stages of the Scotland Bill to be debated

The governments commitment to devolution has further evidence today as the Scotland Bill finishes its last stages of the Commons scrutiny. This is one of the reasons why the North East devolution package is so important - we cannot be left behind by what is happening in Scotland.  This week we also have further debates and amendments of the Trade Unions Bill. I have also got constituent meetings, and a long scheduled meet with Ofsted.
