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.

Support For Buses

Thank you for taking the time to email me about support for local bus services and the drop in session that was held yesterday by the Campaign for Better Transport, unfortunately, I was unable to attend due to prior commitments.

As the MP for a rural area I completely understand the need to protect local bus services and I have often liaised between constituents, the council and transport companies about this. I have also presented petitions to the House of Commons concerning retaining certain bus routes.
