CAMPAIGN CORRESPONDENCE

Every day, I receive a large volume of campaign cards, letters and emails from constituents concerned about a huge variety of issues. While individual constituency enquiries will be answered by email or letter the growth in the volume of generic campaign correspondence now being received means that I no longer respond to this individually - the time this saves is very significant and is spent addressing the considerable and often complex individual casework that I receive. I take all generic campaign emails/letters very seriously - I have posted my responses to these below. Thank you.
