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.

Yemen Crisis

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about the crisis in Yemen.

I understand the concern on this matter and a debate was actually held on this topic in the House at the end of last month. You can view the transcript including the Minister's response here.

Only last week, Jeremy Hunt MP, the Foreign Secretary went on the first visit to Yemen by a Western foreign minister since the start of the conflict in 2015 and you can find out more about this here.

Lastly, you may be interested in the Yemen profile on the Department for International Development's website, which outlines the achievements of UK aid in the area alongside other information.

I do think that the UK will continue to play a pivotal role in supporting Yemen.
