Drop-In Surgeries 2023

MP's column

Hopefully many will have received prior notice of my ‘drop-in’ events that are planned for this weekend. They take place in Porthleven, Newlyn, Pendeen, Goldsithney, Long Rock, Godolphin, St Buryan and Manaccan.

MP's column

I was shocked, sickened and angry when I learned of the murder of my colleague Sir David Amess. He had been an MP for a long time but he did not treat us newer intakes with anything but respect, humour and friendship. He certainly had little interest in point-scoring or self-promotion.

MP's column

This past weekend was one of the most enjoyable and encouraging weekends I can remember in a long time.
