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.

Plastic Pollution

Thank you for taking the time to email me about plastic pollution.

I am afraid I was unable to attend the event on this matter on the 25th of February due to prior commitments, however I do share your view that the government could and should be prepared to go further in reducing plastic waste.

I was pleased to visit Salcombe Primary School to see their work as a Plastic Free School. In addition, I met with the Plastic Free Totnes group to hear about their endeavours, you can find out more about their campaign at the following website
