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.

Disability Benefits Consortium

Thank you for taking the time to email me about the reception being held by the Disability Benefits Consortium on the 16th of July in Parliament.

Unfortunately, I have prior commitments and will be unable to attend but will endeavour to have a look at the report they are launching that day. I understand that some have concerns about the impact of changes to the welfare system on disabled people and I hope you are reassured to know that I recently met with representatives from the disability charity, Sense to discuss one of their ongoing campaigns- 'When I'm gone', which focuses on the families of those living with disabilities.
