Westminster this week -The last 2 days of debate over the Investigatory Powers Bill dominate

I am back in Westminster preparing for the week ahead. The Commons considers the revised IP Bill, following extensive negotiations with all political parties, individual MPs, civil liberty groups and charities. I will be on the bench in the commons on the late shift until 11 pm tomorrow, and 8 on Tuesday. Tuesday and Wednesday I have various constituent meetings in the House, and I am required to stay in the house only until Thursday this week. I will be traveling up late Thursday night. I have a busy weekend planned, but will definitely be in Haydon bridge on Saturday afternoon. This Sunday there are a multitude of celebrations for the Queens 90th birthday.
