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.

Guide Dogs

Thank you for taking the time to email me about the issues faced by assistance dog users and the Guide Dogs charity event that was held in Parliament on the 19th of June.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the event due to prior commitments, however I understand the concern on this matter and have been saddened to hear about those who have been refused a taxi ride or to enter a business due to their assistance dog, this is unacceptable and illegal.
