Up to London and into the Chamber in time for Defence Questions. We'd heard that the Prime Minister had announced a £5 billion increase in defence spending, with £3 billion being spent on nuclear submarines, including the Aukus submarine pact with Australia. While any increase on defence is welcome, there is no new money for our conventional forces, which desperately need it. The Defence Secretary, who has done all he could to get more money, has said the army has been "hollowed out" over many years and I suspect shares our concerns. The world is as unstable as it's ever been in my lifetime and expenditure on defence is pitiful. I caught the Speaker's eye during the one-hour session and my question and reply are on the website. I then remained in the Chamber for a Statement by the Foreign Secretary on the Integrated Review Refresh. This is jargon for yet another look at our defence strategy. Again, I caught the Speaker's eye and both question and answer are on my website. There was then plenty to catch up with, including a meeting of the NTB, chaired by John Redwood, and a meeting with Catharine Hoey, who now sits in the Lords. She is the most lovely lady and, like many of us, remains concerned about Northern Ireland's place in the UK. In the Chamber, Suella Braverman led the Second Reading of the Illegal Immigration Bill. I watched some of it on my office television and, predictably, Labour's backbenchers in particular stoked up the rhetoric. We voted at 2200 and the Bill passed its Second Reading. In other news, we learnt that Gary Lineker would return to present Match of the Day after he was taken off air following his stupid comments. What a shame the BBC capitulated. No one is indispensable and the Director General should have stood his ground. Clearly, what we already knew, that the BBC is not impartial, is now confirmed for all to see, with presenters and the like on huge salaries being paid for by the taxpayer allowed to say what they like.
