Constituents regularly contact me to express their concern about a particular cause.

Good causes, charities, campaign groups (including 38 Degrees) and others that encourage mass emailing sadly take time and resources away from my team and me in meeting the urgent needs of individual constituents.

If you have concerns about a certain campaign, please see if there is already a response on my website before sending a mass mailing. Some responses to current campaigns are listed below.

If it is not already covered, please do contact me and my office to raise the issue directly.

If you or anyone you know are ever in need of urgent personal attention on an issue my office can assist with please feel free to call at any time.

Tax Avoidance in Overseas Territories

Thank you for contacting me about tax abuse and public registers of beneficial ownership in the British Overseas Territories.

It is important that our tax system be efficient, and therefore it is right that issues of tax avoidance and evasion be addressed.

Global Ocean Treaty

Thank you for contacting me about the Global Ocean Treaty.

I share your concern about the need to do all we can to safeguard our environment. The Global Ocean Treaty aims to create a legal mechanism by which marine conservation can be enacted in international waters. 

Taking Action on Climate and Nature

Thank you to those taking the time to contact me about climate change and nature. I share the deep concerns about the impact that climate change is having on our world.


Tackling Homelessness

A response from Sir Peter Bottomley MP:

I am aware that the increase in the cost of living over recent years, partly as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia's invasion of Ukraine, has affected my constituents.

Campaign against Womens' State Pension Inequality (WASPI)

Changes that came in a number of years ago have had a severe impact on some women born in the 1950s as their pensionable ages rise from 60 to 66. It has been estimated that up to one million women have been affected by these changes. 

Family Planning and Abortions

8 May 2024
At-Home Abortions and Sex-Based Abortions

Thank you for contacting me about abortion access. 

If abortions other than natural miscarriages take place, it is my view that they should be with as little delay and as little stress as possible. 

Assisted Dying

A response from Sir Peter Bottomley MP:

Thank you for contacting me about assisted dying.  


The problem of illegal immigration must be addressed effectively.  The present situation is unsafe and unacceptable. 


Post Office Horizon Scandal

In 1999, Horizon, a new computer accounting system, was rolled out across Post Offices nationwide despite glitches experienced during an earlier pilot test. Financial discrepancies at several post office branches were reported shortly after the roll-out. 

Pet Theft

Thank you for contacting me regarding the rising rates of cat theft.  

Britain is a nation of pet lovers and in 2021, the Government set up the Pet Theft Taskforce to investigate concerns about a perceived increase in pet theft.  

Conflict in Israel and Gaza

I join calls across Parliament and worldwide to protect civilians: to urgently press all parties to agree to an immediate de-escalation and cessation of hostilities, to ensure the immediate, unconditional release of the Israeli hostages and to call for an end to the total siege of Gaza.
