When this column first appeared in 2015, we thought ‘In the House’ would be a good title to show what goes on inside Parliament. Never did I think that it would refer to MPs participating in Parliament ‘in their House’. This has been the virtual order for the week as Parliament returned from Easter.
I must start by thanking those who work on the Coronavirus front-line across our hospitals, care sector, shops and communities to deliver the care and essential services which we are still receiving in Rother and Wealden. You are all truly amazing.
As you would expect, the Coronavirus epidemic rightly dominated the week in Westminster. We’ve rushed through legislation to ensure that our health, care and other essential public workers have the extra flexibility they now need to do their job.
