It is my pleasure and privilege to serve the people of Royal Sutton Coldfield. I always work hard to help local residents and to champion the issues of importance to our town.
I hope that this website provides you with a useful insight into some of the work I do on behalf of my constituents – both in Sutton Coldfield and in the House of Commons.
Over the year thousands of local residents contact me by letter, email and in person. If I can be of any help to you, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
You can also follow me over on my Facebook page here.
Across our Royal Town there will be sadness and reflection at the news today of the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Prince Philip was the longest serving consort in British history and he will be remembered for a lifetime of public service. Our thoughts are with Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal family.
Earlier today I met Tina Swani, Chief Executive of the Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust to discuss the ways in which the Trust has been helping our local community and their plans for the coming months.
I know that many of us have missed the Royal Sutton Coldfield Observer over the past year and so I am delighted to confirm that the Royal Sutton Coldfield Chronicle is due to launch next week and it will be delivered to 24,000 homes.
Following the Court of Appeal judgment to quash the convictions of 39 postmasters, Andrew Mitchell condemns the scandal as “grotesque breach of the human rights and civil liberties” and urges the Government to ensure that the inquiry considers in full all the available evidence.
Andrew Mitchell asks why Britain, as chair of the G7, is breaking its promises to the poorest and the election manifesto commitment when Germany will now exceed the 0.7% target, France is now pledged to hit it and the US is increasing aid spending by $15 billion.
Andrew has a keen interest in international development and in 2007 founded Project Umubano, the Conservative Party’s ten-year social action project in Rwanda. The project culminated with the Kigali Declaration against Genocide and Identity-based Violence.
