Every day Anthony receives dozens of campaign emails from constituents concerned about a huge variety of national issues. They are often identical emails which are sent from campaign organisations. He appreciate these issues are of importance to constituents; they are also important to Anthony as they make him aware of an issue and the strength of feeling on a subject.
However, it is important for Anthony to prioritise casework and manage taxpayer-funded staffing costs more effectively. He has therefore made it his policy not to respond individually to email or postcard campaigns. Instead, Anthony will post responses on this section of the website.
You can press 'CTRL' and 'F' on your keyboard to search for a key phrase or word, or browse campaign responses by topic by clicking the links on the left. If Anthony's response to your campaign is not currently published, please do check back at a later date.
Anthony shall, of course, continue to respond to individual constituency casework enquiries via email and letter.
Furthermore, Anthony is unable to sign Early Day Motions as he is a Parliamentary Private Secretary and doing so is likely to breach the Ministerial Code’s rules on collective responsibility.
