Brexit negotiations formally begin in Brussels on MONDAY and Conservative MEPs will play their part in helping secure a deal that works for both the UK and the EU.

Meanwhile it is committee week at the European Parliament. On TUESDAY the International Trade Committee, including Conservative spokesmen Emma McClarkin (East Midlands) and David Campbell Bannerman (Eastern England), will vote on revised anti-dumping measures designed to protect EU manaufacturers from unfair competition.

On WEDNESDAY, Internal Market spokesman Daniel Dalton is presenting his proposals for boosting car safety.
