    Birling Gap Noxious Haze:

    I sent a letter today to the Minster in charge of air quality, Dr Therese Coffey MP. It was in response to her letter to me which failed to come up with anything new, nor offered even a passing acknowledgment that the statutory authorities had failed the public by not collecting a sample of the gas for testing. Or that frankly they'd made a mistake by 'not' collecting the gas. Pretty disappointing really!

    Good to welcome Eastbourne & East Sussex WASPi to my office for their regular monthly meeting. I updated them on what I will be doing in Westminster to further their calls for a fairer pensions transition for women born in the 1950's.

    As well as co-sponsoring a private members bill and joining the All Party Parliamentary Group, I am also planning on taking their case to the parliamentary ombudsman, asking they investigate the processes around the 1995 pensions act.

    Monday was the first of what I think are going to be an awful lot of late votes this parliamentary session!

    Ultimately the government won by 36 votes.

    I voted against because I think it's a bad Bill and will give the executive enormous power. It will allow ministers to change things where they think it is "appropriate", in theory that makes their decisions even exempt to proper legal challenge.
