FORGIVE the dearth of updates today. I’m preparing to make a speech in the aviation debate in the Commons this afternoon and it’s the first speech in more than two years that I’ll have to write myself instead of relying on my civil servants. So prepare for a noticeable drop in quality.

The trickiest part will be trying to get called early enough to get back out of the chamber in time to meet Carolyn for dinner. Need to get my priorities right.
