Today we are hearing the new management details for the Ministry of Defence. I know Liam Fox will want a much tighter system that ensures the Ministry delivers new equipment on time and on budget- something they have struggled to do with their overheated budget.
We will then debate Lords reform. I am hoping to speak. Although there is a respectable argument that the current Upper House does well, it is hard to think we could not improve the selection method for political appointees. Of course we will always want to see great leaders of business, professions, public sector and the charities there, so some appointments are needed. But I feel there is a case for electing the political element.
