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.

Mental Health Act

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about the debate that was held on the Mental Health Act on the 25th of July, unfortunately, I could not attend due to prior commitments.

Nonetheless, I understand you feel the act needs to change and I can assure you that mental health issues have been a strong focus of mine in parliament.

You may like to read a transcript of the debate which includes the Minister's response and you can do so via the following link:
