Click and Send Campaigns

National ‘Click and Send’ CampaignsSince I became an MP in 2010, I have received a great many ‘click and send’ emails which constituents send via lobbying websites.

Paradise Papers

I completely agree that it is right to take decisive action to tackle tax avoidance and evasion, to ensure we have a fair tax system where everyone plays by the rules.


Breastfeeding is a personal choice for each woman to make and not all mothers are able to or choose to breast feed.

Closure of Childcare Vouchers Scheme

I share the belief that childcare is a vital provision that helps children and families across this country. I am glad that the Government is investing more in childcare than ever before.

Animals as Living Beings

I am proud that the UK has some of the highest animal welfare standards in the world. Ministers have been clear that they intend it to remain world-leading in the future and, as a minimum, to retain our existing standards of animal welfare once we have left the EU. 

Mental Health

Tackling poor mental health is a priority and Ministers have legislated to treat it with the same importance as physical health.

Public Sector Pay

Public sector workers deserve to have fulfilling jobs that are fairly rewarded. The Government has confirmed that it will be moving away from the 1 per cent public sector pay policy, towards a more flexible approach on pay.

Scrutinising the Bank of England Campaign

As you know, monetary policy is a matter for the independent Bank of England. I remain firmly supportive of this independence, and the Bank's 2 per cent inflation target is a cornerstone of the UK's financial stability and continued prosperity.

Air Passenger Duty (APD)

The Government has continued to reform APD in the interests of passengers. Duties on long flights have been reduced. Furthermore, duties on short flights have been frozen, and will only rise by inflation from 2018-19.

Autism diagnosis

I know the delays in the diagnosis of autism can cause unnecessary distress, and as such, I am committed to ensuring that people with autism spectrum disorder lead fulfilling and rewarding lives.
