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.

Global Fund

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about The ONE Campaign's mission to raise awareness of the life-saving work of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.

I am very supportive of the great work of the Global Fund and I am glad that the Minister for the Middle East (Alistair Burt) confirmed in the House earlier this year that the UK is considering the Global Fund's investment case ahead of determining our contribution to a successful sixth replenishment, and senior UK attendance at the Global Fund's sixth replenishment conference in October 2019 will be determined in due course.
