John's Quarterly Newsletter December 2013

John’s Quarterly Newsletter December 2013

Let me wish you all a very Happy Christmas and peaceful New Year.

I have decided to publish a quarterly newsletter of my activities in Parliament and in the local community.

These are just some of my main speeches in Parliament since I returned in September after my illness. It doesn't include the numerous questions and other interventions I have also made. If you would like to receive my newsletter by email directly please drop me an email and I will make sure that you do.  

In addition to these speeches, last week I also challenged the Prime Minister at Prime Minister's Question Time about his past statements opposing Heathrow Airport Expansion and his commissioning of the Davies Report, which has recommended potentially two new runways at Heathrow. I reminded him that many local people supported him at the last election because of his statement "No ifs, no buts, there will be no third runway at Heathrow airport" but that now as a result of his Davies Report many felt that they had lost faith in him as someone who kept his word. Needless to say, I received a fairly meaningless reply. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-25432914
