With the assassination of the Russian ambassador in Ankara, Turkey and the lorry attack in Berlin Germany provided fresh reminders yesterday if any were needed of the uncertain and dangerous World in which we live. Unexpected events can unfold in an instant. My thoughts and prayers are with all those who Christmas period has been ruined by the events of yesterday.
In the Commons today the business starts with questions to the Department of Health. Then unless there is further urgent business the first debate is on the problems faced by those who homes are leasehold or commonhold. There is then a general debate on matters which backbench members wish to raise before the Christmas recess.
