I am grateful to my constituents who write to me regarding a wide variety of national issues. However, due to the volume of campaign-style emails that are now being generated it is difficult to respond to each of these personally in a timely fashion. I have therefore created this section on my website and I will be posting my responses to various subjects here.

My responses are organised here by subject depending on which Government Department they fall under. I shall endeavour to update the topics here as soon as I have had an opportunity to consult with Ministers and conduct research into the concerns raised in the emails received.

I will of course continue to respond personally to individual constituency casework enquiries via email and letter.
