I am again in the conference hall after highlighting the need for a high speed rail link to the North East earlier by riding on a little train on the sea front today. Hopefully an mooted link will be a little quicker! Yesterday, I attended two important events. On very close to my heart was a fringe debate about the value of charities in society and the problem they are having in the current recession. A crucial service is offered by many of these groups and we must all try to ensure their services are valued.
In addition, I attended a great debate about recognising the obligation we have to soldiers. In particular rehabilitation and proper housing for returning soldiers was stressed. A busy day today so must dash!
