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.

Palestinian Health Care Workers

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about attacks on Palestinian health care workers in Gaza.

I understand your concern on this matter and agree that health care workers should be protected. I do hope that the government will raise the issue of accountability for these attacks at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva next month.

You may be interested to read the Occupied Palestinian Territories profile by the Department for International Development which outlines what UK aid is achieving in the area. You can read it via the following link.
