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.

Food Crisis

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about a potential food crisis caused by a no deal Brexit.

As you may know I remain firmly opposed to a no deal Brexit and will be doing everything I can to stop this. You may like to read my Brexit blogs and you can do so here:'s-blog/

The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee is also holding an inquiry in to whether the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affair is ready for Brexit and you can find out more about this here.

Thank you for getting in touch and whilst I note the government does maintain that there will be adequate food supplies, that was hardly the advert on the side of the Brexit bus
