Campaign Responses

I appreciate Constituents’ concerns regarding a wide variety of national issues, however due to the volume of campaign emails that are now being generated on a daily basis I can no longer provide an individual reply. I have therefore created a ‘campaign emails’ section of my website and I shall be posting my responses to various subjects on to this page.

I shall endeavour to update topics as soon as I have had the chance to consult with my ministerial colleagues and conduct research into differing concerns.

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


Fur Imports

We are a nation of animal lovers, so it is only right that we have some of the highest welfare standards in the world. In addition to fur farming being banned in the UK, I am pleased to note that the import of fur products is tightly regulated.

Local Lockdowns

Coronavirus is the biggest challenge the UK has faced in decades – and we are not alone. All over the world we are seeing the devastating impact of this disease. 

The UK and the Situation in Yemen

I share many of your concerns regarding the crisis in Yemen and the plight of the Yemeni people who are caught up in the conflict. That is why I am proud that the UK is leading the international community to do more to respond to the crisis in Yemen.

Statues, Public Monuments and Collective Heritage

I thought it would be useful to outline the Government’s view on the heated debate in the last week about the removal of public monuments due to the past views or actions of those historic figures.

Upholding the rule of law

NHS Worker's Pay Rise

I believe that the passion, commitment, and specialist knowledge of our NHS staff is part of what makes our NHS so special. I recognise that staff morale is vital to maintaining staff commitment to services.

Phased School Openings

As the Government begins to slowly and cautiously lift some of the restrictions, it hopes to be able to return some pupils to school. This will not happen any earlier than 1 June, and only if the five key tests set by Government justify the changes at the time.
