My Views

NOTE: The content on this page was established while I was a Member of Parliament. As Parliament has been dissolved there are no MPs until after the General Election on 8th June 2017.

I always try to respond to correspondence from constituents as quickly as possible.  Every day I receive hundreds of campaign emails from people across Bath, on a wide variety of issues, frequently, but not always, part of organised campaigns on specific policies.

I will be posting my views on topics where I am receiving large volumes of correspondence and to keep the costs of politics down, I will not be replying directly on topics where my views are available on this page.

I will continue to reply to all constituency enquiries, and specific policy concerns, but I can no longer guarantee an individual reply to each writing campaign email.  I prioritise cases where I am concerned someone may be at risk of harm.

Furthermore, I do not sign EDMs as they are costly, hardly ever get debated and I prefer to raise issues of concern directly with the relevant Minister. This way I know the Minister has received a letter regarding the issue. 

Thank you for taking the time to contact me.

UPDATE: You can find all my views and developments on Brexit visiting my designated Brexit page here.
