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.

Equal Civil Partnership

Thank you very much for taking the time to contact me about the Private Member's Bill concerning making civil partnerships available to opposite sex couples.

I am afraid I already have prior commitments in the constituency on Friday the 2nd of February so I am afraid I will be unable to be in the house to support the bill. However, I do support this idea in principle and remain hopeful that the bill will progress.
