Week Ahead 14th-20th of January
This week in Parliament starts with the conclusion of the debate on the European Union (Withdrawal) Act, before the historic vote on the Prime Minister’s deal on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the Immigration and Social Security Co-Ordination (EU Withdraw) Bill is due to have its second reading, with debates on Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace and Children’s Social Care in England scheduled for Thursday. This could of course change, subject to the result of Tuesday’s meaningful vote and a potential vote of no confidence in Theresa May’s government from the Opposition.
Departmental questions this week include Defence, Health and Social Care, Scotland, Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, and Church Commissioners, as well as the usual Prime Minister’s Questions.
Kerry’s committee business continues as usual, with two meetings of the Environmental Audit Committee – a public meeting to take evidence on for its Planetary Health inquiry, and a private meeting on Pre Legislative Scrutiny of the Draft Environment (Principles and Governance) Bill – and a meeting of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee for a private briefing from DEFRA officials on the National Food Strategy.
On Monday, Kerry will be meeting with officials from the Minister of Housing, Communities and Local Government to discuss the legislation around supported housing, including Wick House in her constituency. She has also been drafted onto the legislation committee on Draft Higher Education (Fee Limits for Accelerated Courses) Regulations 2018. In addition to this, Kerry will be popping in to the ABHI Parliamentary Reception, where P3 Medical Ltd, a company based in her constituency, will be in attendance.
Also this week, Kerry will be attending the launch of Open Doors 2019 World Watch List report, at the request of many constituents, and on Thursday, as part of the Children’s Future Food Inquiry, a ‘Food for Thought’ event to hear from young people in the UK about their experience of food insecurity, followed by an evidence hearing on the same subject.
On Friday, Kerry will be back in the constituency where, amongst other things, she will be meeting with the CEO of Bristol Water to discuss its ‘Bristol Water for All’ plan, and with Paul Smith, Bristol City Council Cabinet Member for Homes and Communities, to catch up on a range of issues relating to Bristol East.
On Saturday, Kerry will be holding a public meeting for Stockwood residents discuss to discuss upcoming transport and development proposals and other issues that affect the community. Please visit the following link for further details and to register your attendance: https://bit.ly/2Ck36Ih
