A run in stunning but cold conditions and then into the Commons. Routine matters out of the way, I went for an introductory meeting with Laura Hughes, a political reporter with the FT. PMQs followed immediately afterwards, where Mrs May more than held her own against Corbyn.
Last December the UK and the EU reached an important milestone in the Brexit process by agreeing our Joint Report on phase one of negotiations. It set out the united approach to Citizens Rights, the Financial Settlement and Northern Ireland that we want to take in the Withdrawal Agreement.
Up to London after a brief stint in the office. Two meetings dominated the day. The first was with the Chief Whip at 1630. A team of us went on one of our regular meetings to have a chat in confidence about issues such as Brexit.
Another most useful and informative meeting with my NFU group, which meets quarterly. The aim has always been to achieve a flow of information between Government and farmers in S Dorset and to a very large extent I'd like to think this initiative works well.
