Budget Passed

The Prime Minister made a statement to Parliament yesterday on the European Council she attended last week. I was able to ask a question and I asked about free access to the European Single Market. I pointed out that we do not have to pay to sell our goods and services to any other country around the World.

In the morning I chaired the first session of the Committee Stage of the Bus Services Bill. In the afternoon I attended the Backbench Business Committee where we heard bids for debates on the operation of the Child Maintenance Service, the future of Local and Regional news provision and the position of the claim for  compensation from the German government for the victims of the Thalidomide drug.

The budget debate was completed and the government will now bring forward a Finance Bill to implement the various measures announced in the Budget.

Today after questions to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and then the Prime Minister the main business is consideration of amendments made by the House of Lords to the  Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill  and the remaining stages of the National Citizens Service Bill

  1. I wish the PM luck in providing the answer soon.
    Always remembering that the EU is an institution and not a country the Govt must remain vigilant about ridiculous reasons for demanding payments from petulant posturers ( if there is such a word)

  2. Nearly agree with you. Given that we import around 288Bn quid from the EU and export 226Bn to the EU that means we pay them to sell to us. That’s like me giving Tesco all my income so I can buy everything from them. Good on Mr Hammond – NCIS 4 reversal is the correct thing to do. If I was him and go and metaphorically strangle the advisor who said it was a good idea.
