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.

School Funding

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me.

I understand your concerns about school funding, I often visit local schools to meet with both students and teachers. Only last month I met with Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State at the Department for Education along with local head teachers up in Westminster to discuss funding challenges and how we can use resources most effectively to give pupils the support they need to stay in school.

I also spoke in a debate on school funding in the House yesterday and you can view my intervention here.
