Campaigns. It is important that I continue to know the strength of feeling on an issue and I prefer to respond to every inquiry, but the sheer size of campaign correspondence means that it is hard to justify to the tax payer the cost and time taken for individual written replies, so regrettably I will no longer reply to every item of campaign correspondence.  I will  post a response to the campaign on the "Responses to campaigns" page of my website.

I am sorry to do this, as it is rather impersonal, but can see no other way of maintaining a good service for all my constituents unless I approach campaigns this way.

Abortion Northern Ireland

Thank you for taking the time to email me.

I am afraid I will not be able to attend the meeting concerning abortion in Northern Ireland tomorrow due to prior commitments, but I appreciate you flagging it up with me.
