Questioning the Chancellor on Ukraine
The situation in Ukraine is of serious and increasing concern, and we are all watching and waiting, as matters unfold.
I have been speaking in Westminster about the importance of being clear on the challenges posed, which are no doubt amplified by the Ukraine situation, in terms of economic crime, Russian funds and influence.
The Chancellor was not really willing to get into this, which is unhelpful, especially considering that one of his own Ministers in thew House of Lords resigned for want of action here.
As this challenging situation progresses, the need for clarity on these matters is increasingly important.
