I welcome comments on my social media pages. I appreciate a free and frank exchange of views is a cornerstone of our democracy. There may sometimes be differences of opinion, which I am always happy to hear and to respond to when time permits, either on Government policy or local issues. However, I will not tolerate abusive, racist, homophobic, sexist, defamatory, bullying, threatening, hateful, obscene, libelous or aggressive comments or behaviour, or people who seek to engage in nuisance posting on my page persistently.
I reserve the right to remove comments or prevent access to my social media space from any users that are deemed to be engaging in any of the above practices in breach of my social media policy. I reserve the right to report any comments deemed to be racist, homophobic or other hate speech to Facebook or other appropriate authorities. I also reserve the right to remove unsolicited endorsements or third-party advertising.
If you need to raise an issue with me urgently then please either email or telephone my office in the first instance. If you are concerned with a particular issue and would like to discuss it with me personally, I hold regular surgeries, which can be arranged via appointment with my office.
All casework should be received by either telephone, letter, or email. Please note that I do not accept casework by social media. I only accept casework from people living in the Totnes and South Devon constituency. If you live outside of my constituency, you can find your MP here: http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps
