Campaign Responses

Hen Harriers 12/08/20

Thank you for writing to me regarding hen harrier and raptor persecution which I too believe is a deeply concerning and serious criminal offence.

Arthritis 21/07/20

Thank you for contacting me about arthritis. I know this can be a very painful and debilitating condition.

Air Quality

Thank you for contacting me about air quality.

Poor air quality is the greatest environmental risk to our health. Our air is now cleaner than at any point since the industrial revolution, but there is more work to be done if we are to protect the health of our nation.

Supporting pubs

Pubs play a crucial role in the social and economic life of our nation, as well in helping to promote responsible drinking, which is why I am encouraged by the support which has made available to pubs and our manifesto commitment to further cut taxes for small businesses.

NHS waiting times

As I am sure you are aware, the Prime Minister recently announced the Government’s intention to provide the NHS with an additional £33.9 billion by 2023/24; this is the largest, longest funding settlement in the history of the NHS.

Reading Tax

Thank you for contacting me about VAT being applied to digital publications.

Whip in horse racing

Thank you for contacting me about the use of the whip in horseracing. I too share your concern for the welfare of horses.

Environment Bill

Thank you for contacting me about the Environment Bill.

As set out in the 25 Year Plan to Improve the Environment, the decision to leave the European Union has created an historic opportunity to deliver a Green Brexit, where environmental standards are not only maintained but enhanced.
