Conversations and Post Bag Issues September / October 2016

Every month I receive hundreds of emails covering different issues in regards to what bills are going through Parliament and issues that affect our community in the Bootle constituency. Each month I try to summarise the top issues that I am working on, explaining what I am doing so you can keep up to date and also get information that may be of benefit to you.  The issues of Concentrix and Tax Credits have been a huge issue for constituents but I have not included them in this update as I have made a separate blog for that issue and also raised the issue multiple times in parliament (see my parliamentary work).   Here are the issues for September and October 2016.

Conversations and post bag issues during July and August 2016

Summer recess for me is not a time for summer holidays but a great opportunity to spend time across the whole of the constituency – catching up with local businesses, community organisations and local residents.  It really is the time of the year I enjoy the most as your local MP and having so many conversations reminds me of one of the most important reasons MP’s are in parliament for – to represent our community, local businesses and neighbourhood concerns.

Across the summer months there have been a number of big issues and concerns that people have contacted me or my office about.  Here is a summary of the main issues.
