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.

Andrew Mitchell MP met Henrietta Brealey the new CEO of the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce followed by a meeting with Mike Bushell, the Sutton Coldfield Town Centre BID Manager.
To mark World Alzheimer’s Month, Andrew Mitchell MP joined Alzheimer’s Research UK at an event in Parliament to show his support for funding dementia research. The aim of the event was to highlight the importance of the government’s manifesto promise to double funding for dementia research, known as the “Dementia Moonshot”.
I would like to begin this week’s message by paying tribute to my longstanding colleague and friend Sir David Amess MP. I have known David since he was first elected in 1983 and our offices in the House of Commons were next door to each other. David was a great champion of animal rights and a hugely experienced MP who was respected across the House. Today’s news is a terrible shock and my thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues.

Every day 15 people are killed or injured by landmines and unexploded ordnance. Most of them are children, like the 10-year-old girl I met in Kabul, who suffered life changing injuries after stepping on a mine while playing with her friends.
During the debate on the Second Reading of the Health and Social Care Levy Bill, Andrew Mitchell seeks an assurance that the Government will report back every six months on the progress on tackling the NHS backlog as a result of this levy.
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.
