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.

Cocoa Farmers

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about fair trade chocolate and ensuring that cocoa farmers are supported to achieve a living income.

I actually met with the local Totnes and Brixham fair trade groups only last week during Fair Trade Fortnight to discuss this campaign.

You may like to read about what the Department for International Development is doing to help cocoa farmers and you can do so via the following link.
