The House of Commons is about to rise for the summer recess.
Many may think this will mean months of relaxation, kicking my heels. In fact, I plan only to take a short family holiday. The fact that I am not in the House during this time does not affect the post or email – I expect to continue to receive about 100 letters a day and over 150 emails. Many are from constituents with a problem or wanting to express a view. Helping them continues all through the year.
I also enjoy the chance to be able to visit schools and businesses in the constituency more in recess too.
