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.

Arthritis Debate

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about the debate held on arthritis on the 22nd of May, unfortunately I was unable to attend due to prior commitments.

However, I understand how debilitating arthritis can be and I do think the government is taking action to support those with such conditions in the work place. You can view the full transcript of the debate and the Minister's response here.
