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.

Divest Parliament

Today I wrote the following to the Chair of IPSA:-

I am writing to you after meeting with constituency members of the Divest Parliament campaign.

I would like to express my view that my pension funds are invested in renewable energy projects rather than in fossil fuels.

I think this would indicate and reinforce the government's commitment to tackling climate change.
