Westminster this week - busy week in the Commons as the new PM is in China for the G20

The Prime Minister is in China for the G20 Summit – where she is showing that Britain is a bold, confident, outward-looking country.
At this meeting of the G20, we are showing that Britain is open for business as a bold, confident, outward looking country. The Prime Minister will be highlighting that, while we will continue to play a key role on the world stage, we will be talking to other nations about the opportunities for trade around the globe that will open up for Britain following Brexit.

Our ambition is that Britain will be a global leader in free trade. We are going to make the most of the opportunities that our departure from the EU presents – getting out into the world and doing business right across the globe, while at home building a Britain that works for everyone.
In Westminster we have the Funance Bill today and tomorrow and various other debates in the house this week. I am on the bench in the house on Tuesday morning for Justice Questions with the new Lord Chancellor. This week I also have a variety of constituents coming south to London and meetings in Westminster re Northumberland.
