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.

Diana Johnson Bill

Thank you for letting me know your views on this issue which will always be a matter of personal conscience. I am sorry that we will have to disagree on the nature of this bill which is not about 'self-abortion' but about decriminalising abortion for women seeking help. Those providing services outside a strictly regulated framework would still face penalties and the legal limit would remain in place at 24 weeks.
