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.

Bowel Cancer

Thank you for letting me know about the bowel cancer campaign.

I would like to assure you that I will continue to take an interest in improving early diagnosis as I know that this is extremely important for bowel cancer. As chair of the Health and Social Care Committee, I and the committee will also be holding NHS England to account for delivering on the commitments they made about cancer in the NHS Long Term Plan and as your MP I look forward to meeting with a number of cancer charities and campaigners over the coming year.
