The week ahead

Week beginning 24th July

Parliament is now in recess, and will return on Tuesday September 5th. Brexit negotiations will of course continue. The EU Withdrawal Bill - formerly referred to as the Great Repeal Bill - was published shortly before recess and MPs will be spending the summer break scrutinising it in fine detail. Kerry will also be using recess to catch up on local meetings, e.g. with the Police & Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable; with the Council to discuss its budget consultation; and with the Feeding Bristol steering group. Kerry will also be spending some time in the USA with the British-American Parliamentary Group, meeting members of Congress and other lawmakers, with a particular focus on UK-US trade talks and a post-Brexit deal.
