Bob attended a very busy Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham. Bob took the opportunity to attend a Scouts workshop and discuss the challenges facing young people today as well as the opportunities promoted by the “Big Society”.
Bob met the Indian High Commissioner to talk about the new relationship being promoted by the new Conservative-led coalition government. The visit by David Cameron, several members of the Cabinet and senior business people in the summer has helped improve relations between Britain and India. Now the challenge is to ensure that this relationship develops further to build on this promising start.
Bob met the Israel Ambassador to discuss the position in the Middle East. Bob is a member of Conservative Friends of Israel and a prominent supporter of the State of Israel and frequently raises key issues at Foreign and Commonwealth questions in the House of Commons.
