 Today's Highlighted Video Story: Widespread confusion and accusations the Australia government has lost control were a plenty after a vote in the lower house to debate a bill to establish a federal integrity commission was narrowly defeated on a technicality. 66 Lower House MPs voted in favour of debating Helen Haines' bill with 64 opposing. But standing orders require an absolute majority of 76 and, with some members not in the house because of COVID restrictions, it failed.

Focus of the Day Story: This week the Ministry of Justice embarks on an overseas trade mission to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to showcase UK legal services in the Middle East. The trip is led by Justice Lords Minister David Wolfson QC, who, as a former barrister, is experienced in law and international arbitration, with knowledge of the region. He is accompanied by 28 leading legal professionals – including the president of the Law Society and the chair of the Bar Council.  Full story - The Law Society Gazette
