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.

Investor State Dispute Settlement

Thank you for taking the time to email me with your concerns about Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS).

I understand your concern on this matter and I will endeavour to pop by the event on this topic on the 12th of March.

Concerns about ISDSs were raised in the House last year and you can view the points made via the transcript here:
