Following my last update on 14 June, I have continued to work constructively with colleagues, whatever their views, both in the Government and on the backbenches, to seek a departure from the EU that prioritises business, prosperity and jobs.
Now that the House of Commons is considering the Lords’ amendments to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, I intend to post a series of detailed updates on my website to explain my rationale on particular votes as they arise, as I have endeavoured to do previously.
As someone who travels from Chislehurst to Westminster every day using our local rail services, I am only too aware how busy and unpleasant the commute can already be, and understand the sort of problems many of us regularly face simply trying to get from A to B.
After what I appreciate has been an incredibly stressful and, at times, frustrating month for many families across Bromley and Chislehurst, I am delighted that it has been confirmed this afternoon that Bullers Wood School for Boys will be opening this September in temporary accommodation at 1 Wes
Having successfully passed through the Commons on 17 January, the EU (Withdrawal) Bill – the legislative mechanism that will allow us to incorporate EU law into UK domestic legislation – will begin being debated in the House of Lords today.
Following the regular updates I have been posting on my website, I wanted to tell residents why I voted against the Government last night, supporting Amendment 7 of the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, moved by my Conservative colleague Dominic Grieve QC, the former Attorney General.
Since I posted my last rail update in August, I have continued to press representatives from the rail industry, as well as Ministers at the Department for Transport, on the improvements we all want to see in Bromley and Chislehurst.
