I do appreciate their strength of feeling on this matter.

The Environment Act

Many constituents have contacted me about the environment. Here is my response:

Corporation tax

A number of constituents have contacted me about large companies paying corporation tax.

Central Equine Database

 

A number of constituents have written to me about the welfare of horses and the Central Equine Database.

Food Labelling

Residents have contacted me about their concerns about the way in which food labelling of meat and dairy products can mislead consumers.

Childhood Obesity

A number of constituents have contacted me about childhood obesity.

With nearly a third of children aged two to fifteen overweight or obese, I agree that this is an important issue to tackle.

Hospital Parking Charges

Poorly patients and their families should not have to deal with the added stress of parking charges at hospitals.

Palestinian Children in Israeli Custody

 

The detention of Palestinian children in Israeli prisons is extremely worrying.

In 2012, an independent report on Children in Military Custody was funded and facilitated by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
