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.

Medical Cannabis

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about access to medical cannabis.

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

The view that the process that has been adopted by the government has failed to deliver was put to the relevant Minister in the House last month and you can view the exchange via the following link

You can also view the interim guidance and information on the law for healthcare professionals here

The Health and Social Care Select Committee, which I chair, is also holding an inquiry into medical cannabis and you can submit evidence to the inquiry direct. You can find out more about this here.
