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.

Fair Votes

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about electoral reform and the debate on this on the 30th of October.

I understand many would like to see proportional representation introduced. However, people voted to keep our First Past the Post (FPTP) system in a referendum in 2011 and I respect that decision.
