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.

Assaults on Emergency Workers Bill

Thank you for getting in touch and for letting me know that you support Chris Bryant's bill.

I think it likely that this will progress but as a private member's bill there is no guarantee that it will do so.

I'm afraid I have a full constituency day of surgeries, meetings and visits which I cannot rearrange and so will not be there for private member's business this Friday to speak in the debate but I am happy to support it through its further stages and am optimistic about its chances of progress.
