Welcome to my website
I am the Member of Parliament for Reading West.
Having grown up locally in Reading and being very much a local Reading man, I am delighted to have been elected for a constituency in my home town.
Since being picked to contest Reading West almost four years ago I have been working, with local residents, on issues and campaigns across the constituency.
This site provides you with all the latest news and information about my work and campaigns and allows you to see what I have been doing around the constituency.
If you would like to get in touch to tell me your opinions or if you think I may be able to help you in some way, please do not hesitate to contact me by email, letter or telephone.
