Monday Kerry will be speaking at a Youth Climate summit in Bath before heading
to Westminster. This week in Parliament will be dominated again by the EU
(Notification of Withdrawal) Bill. A plethora of amendments have been tabled,
some of which will be debated in the House of Commons on Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday this week, and a handful will be voted upon, before the Third
Reading of the Bill at close of play on Wednesday. The Bill will then go to the
House of Lords. Kerry hopes to find time to post updates on which amendments
she is supporting, and the votes, as they are discussed.
this week, we have Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport questions, as
well as PMQs. There is a Westminster Hall debate calling for a ban on the ivory
trade, which many constituents have emailed Kerry about, and Kerry will also be
taking part in sessions of the Environmental Audit Committee (on chemicals
regulation post-Brexit) and the Environment Food and Rural Affairs Committee
(on labour shortages in the food and farming sector). Kerry will also be
chairing an Industry and Parliament Trust event, "Lifting the Lid on Food
Waste" as well as attending a Bond event on the Sustainable Development
Goals, and a Channel 4 breakfast briefing on fake news with Jon Snow.
Thursday Kerry, having visited the Lush factory in Poole last Thursday, will be
attending Day Two of The Lush Summit, to take part in a panel discussion, and
meet with lots of campaigners and grassroots organisations. More details here
for anyone who might be in London and interested in attending here.
Later on the same day Kerry will be speaking at an Intelligence Squared event,
"Nature: Our Best Climate Technology".
will then be heading to New York to represent the UK at the United Nations
annual hearing, which this year is focusing on Sustainable Development Goal 14,
protecting our oceans and marine life. She will then be spending the rest of
half term recess in Bristol, catching up on constituency work and meetings.
