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.

Votes at 16

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about the Overseas Electors Bill and the amendment concerning votes at 16.

I am afraid I will be unable to attend the report stage of the bill on the 22nd of March as I will be in the constituency that day. However, I appreciate the arguments for extending the franchise and I did support allowing 16 and 17 year olds being able to vote in the EU referendum.
