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.

Child Refugees

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about the situation for child refugees.

I understand your concern on this matter and I am of course happy to meet any constituents who wish to discuss child refugee resettlement with me in a constituency surgery.

You may also be interested in the Government's response to the Unaccompanied Child Migrants Report published by the Home Affairs Committee following their inquiry on this topic. You can read it via the following link:
