Week 17 October – 23 October
In a week when the third and final US Presidential debate took place, a decision on airport expansion in the UK was pushed back for at least another year, and by-elections were held in both Witney, following David Cameron’s resignation, and Batley and Spen, after the killing of Jo Cox, what did Bernard Jenkin do?
Speeches and written questions
Bernard Jenkin did not give any contributions in debates this week.
The MP for Harwich and North Essex voted in one parliamentary division this week. He voted: against a motion put forward by SNP MP Joanna Cherry that would call on the government to ensure that all nationals from other countries in the EU who have made the UK their home retain their current rights, including the rights to live and work in the UK, should the UK exit the EU.
Mr Jenkin was loyal to the government and voted with the majority.
The Committees which Mr Jenkin sits on did not carry out any oral evidence sessions this week.
