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.

Assisted Dying

Thank you very much for taking the time to write to me.

I am sorry to disappoint you but I have not changed my stance on assisted dying. I do think there would be unintended consequences and that was why I voted against the bill when it came to the house previously. I also felt it might move on from a right to die to a duty to die.
