David Lidington MP - My first two weeks as Minister for Europe
David Lidington MP was appointed Minister of State at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office on 14 May 2010 as part of the new coalition government. He was elected to Parliament in 1992 and is the Member of Parliament for Aylesbury. When in opposition he was Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, from July 2007.
He has now started his weblog on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website, with his first article My first two weeks as Minister for Europe .
On the 26th May the Spanish Europe Minister, Diego Lopez Garrido, was in London and had an introductory breakfast meeting with David Lidington. They discussed a wide range of issues from the work of the EU over the next ten years to plans for an extra UK Member of the European Parliament. There is an interesting video posted within DL's article on his blog.
