Westminster this week - meetings with Environment Agency, Northern Rail and the Energy Bill dominate

I have a packed week with the Energy Bill being debated all Monday afternoon and evening till 10. Later in the week we are also debating the Psychoactive substances bill, which particularly addresses the problem with legal highs.  I have meetings with the Environment Agency, a telephone conference with Northern Rail concerning the Tyne Valley line, and a discussion with the Centre for Social Justice about prison reform.
