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.

Open Doors

Thank you for taking the time to email me about Hannah Rose Thomas' exhibition on Yezidi Women in Parliament from the 26th to the 29th of March.

I understand the calls to ensure that religious freedom is promoted in the Middle East and I am glad that the government is firmly committed to promoting and protecting the right to freedom of religion or belief for Christians, and indeed individuals of all faiths or beliefs, around the world, and to being a strong voice internationally in defence of this fundamental right.
