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.

Caroline Lucas Amendment

Thank you very much for writing to me about Caroline Lucas's proposed amendment to scrap the limit on fines which can be imposed by the electoral commission.

Unfortunately, this amendment was not selected by the Deputy Speaker so was not debated. In view of the irregularities during the Brexit referendum, it is a shame we were unable to vote on this amendment.
