Thank you to those who have emailed me recently about the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill, which will introduce legislation to replace the current system known as 'Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards'. I appreciate the concerns that have been raised.
I have received the following letter from the Work and Pensions Secretary regarding the next phase of the Universal Credit roll out (Managed Migration) and the two-child policy, which I hope constituents will find helpful.
It would be foolish to gloss over the vote last night in the House of Commons on Brexit. It was a huge vote against the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated by the Government and the EU, and historically extraordinary. Of course it’s a serious blow.
Parliament returned this week and provided a couple of reminders that the Conservative Government does not have a majority, and the complications of that are likely to accelerate over the next few weeks.
