Out for a run first thing on a sunny morning. Into the House and a meeting with my parliamentary team to catch up on constituency matters. I wrote to minister Robert Jenrick to find out whether a Guardian article, claiming that the Legionella found on the Portland barge was the most deadly strain, was true. I also asked when the migrants were expected back. A sandwich at my desk and then a most useful virtual meeting with minister Tom Pursglove and a constituent, who had a number of points she wanted to raise about PIP. At 1630 I attended the weekly private meeting with a small group of colleagues to chew the cud. Quite a bit of chewing went on! In Government news, the work and pensions' secretary refused to commit to raising the state pension to match official overall earnings figures. Abroad, as many as 10,000 people were missing in Libya after severe flooding in the east of the country. US President Joe Biden could be facing a possible impeachment inquiry over his family's business dealings. And North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrived via rail in Russia where he was due to meet President Vladimir Putin. What a couple of charmers!
