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.
