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.

Save Our Pubs

Thank you for taking the time to email me about the Save Our Pubs campaign and the debate that was held on the 28th of March.

I am sorry I was not able to attend the debate but I will continue to support pubs across the constituency and to listen to campaigners.

The following is a link to the transcript of the debate including the Minister's response:
