Parliament is now on its summer break, and I'll be out and about in the constituency (and taking some time away on holiday!) over the next few weeks.
It's been a busy time since the general election: I've contributed 26 times to debates in the chamber and Westminster Hall, asked 59 written questions of ministers, and my staff team and I have already taken up more than 200 new cases and queries for residents since the election on 8 June.
So it will be nice to have some time to recharge my batteries, and to catch up with local residents to hear your concerns and views. We are just at the start of what we now expect will be a two-year parliament, for which Theresa May set out the government's programme in the Queen's Speech last month. It would be great if you'd take a few minutes to complete this survey to let me know what matters coming up in parliament are most important to you and your family, and what you'd like me to concentrate on in the constituency and in Westminster when we return after the summer break.
Meantime, I'm looking forward to meeting as many as possible of you in person too. If you've got an event or project you'd like me to visit, please let me know. It's been lovely visiting so many fabulous businesses, schools, community groups and charities; welcoming young people who've done work experience in my office; and meeting local residents, since the election. Here are a few pictures of what I've been up to in the past few weeks.
P.S: I’m holding an update on Brexit matters for local residents on Tuesday 19th September. If you’re interested in coming along please save the date – more details will follow soon.
