Campaign Responses

Mass Email Campaigns

Every day, I receive dozens of campaign emails from constituents concerned about a huge variety of national issues. While individual constituency enquiries will be answered by email or letter, due to the vast increase in the volume of campaign emails now being generated, it is more efficient to post my responses to mass campaigns on this section of my website. Please be assured that all standard emails are collected and read, but it is not always possible to reply to each individually.

Early Day Motions (EDMs)

In common with many MPs, I do not sign Early Day Motions, as I do not believe they are an efficient or effective use of parliamentary resources. However, where a mass email campaign references an EDM, the topic will be addressed in my campaign response. Where many constituents feel strongly, I take up the issue directly with ministers.
