• visiting the NATO Baltic air-policing mission

    I joined a cross-party Parliamentary delegation to Estonia to visit the NATO Baltic air-policing mission, currently led by the Royal Air Force. It was good to see at first hand the important work being done to uphold international law, security and democratic values.

    We also spent time with the UK Ambassador in Tallinn and at the Estonian Ministry of Defence.

    As always it was good to meet servicemen and women from St Helens and the North West, all of them missing home and their families but doing a vitally important job.
