Week 7 November – 13 November
In a week when Donald Trump was elected as the next President of the United States, yes really, Donald Trump was elected president, and, I’ll say it one more time so we’re clear, Donald Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America, what did Bernard Jenkin do?
Speeches and written questions
Mr Jenkin made one contribution this week in the House of Commons on 7 November about the High Court’s ruling that Parliament must vote on triggering Article 50.
He asked a question to the Brexit Secretary David Davis in which he first asked whether the Secretary of State was “aware that some people have been describing this moment as some kind of constitutional crisis?” He also invited Mr Davis to pursue an appeal at the Supreme Court and seek to get the High Court judgement overturned.
Mr Jenkin did not vote in any divisions this week.
The committees on which Mr Jenkin sits did not hold any oral evidence sessions this week.
