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.

Venezuela

Thank you for taking the time to email me about the deteriorating situation in Venezuela.

I understand your concern on this matter and I hope the following information on this matter from the Foreign Office is of interest:

It is absolutely imperative that human rights, the rule of law, the separation of powers and the integrity of democratic institutions are respected, and our Foreign Secretary has made that clear.
This situation is evolving fast and one of the first items on the agenda for debate when Parliament returns after the summer recess is the political situation in Venezuela.
