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, I can no longer guarantee replying to these individually and will therefore be posting my responses on this section of my website. You may also be able to find the information you are looking for on the website of the relevant Government department.
Early Day Motions (EDMs)
Early Day Motions (EDMs) are something that I regularly get asked to sign. EDMs are used to put on record the views of individual MPs or to draw attention to specific events or campaigns. I do not sign any EDMs at all, however much I may sympathise with the cause they are highlighting. The administration around EDMs is costly to the taxpayer and they rarely have any influence on the legislative process.
