I have now returned from a very hectic first three days in Westminster. Although momentous events were unfolding around me I have been more concerned with trying to get to grips with all the new arrangements. we have had a series of briefings and training sessions as well as being issued with our passes and being shown where our desks are. It may well be many weeks before I am allocated an office so for the moment I am sharing one of the Committee rooms in the House of Commons. One of the things we had to do was have our photo taken with all the new members elected as the 2010 intake.
My first priority is to put all the basics in place as soon as I can so I am able to provide a first class service to constituents. To all those who have already been in touch I can reassure everyone that no one will be forgotten.
