Campaign Responses

Every day, I receive dozens of campaign emails from constituents concerned about a huge variety of national issues. While individual constituency enquiries will be answered by email or letter, due to the vast increase in the volume of campaign emails now being generated, I am also posting my responses to campaigns on this section of my website.

James Duddridge MP - Member of Parliament for Rochford and Southend East


Response to Trade Bill and National Health Service campaign

Thank you for contacting me about the Trade Bill and New Clause 8, previously New Clause 12.

I appreciate your concerns, but I do not believe New Clause 8 would be necessary, however laudable the aims behind it. There are several reasons for this.

Response to Stop BDS campaign

Thank you for contacting me about the Israel-Britain Alliance campaign on local government pensions guidance and foreign policy.

Response to National Health Service pay campaign

Thank you for contacting me about National Health Service pay.

I believe that the passion, commitment, and specialist knowledge of our National Health Service staff is part of what makes it so special. I recognise that staff morale is vital to maintaining staff commitment to services.

Response to HS2 and its Environmental Impact campaign

Thank you for contacting me about HS2 and the environment.
On the recommendation of the independent Oakervee review commissioned last year, the Prime Minister has given the go ahead to HS2, alongside major improvements to local transport networks up and down the country.

Response to Animal Sentience campaign

Thank you for contacting me about animal sentience.

First and foremost, I believe animals are sentient beings who can feel pain and suffering, and I would like to reassure you that strong action is being taken to reduce their risk of harm.

Response to Fur Trade and Early Day Motion 267 campaign

Thank you for contacting me about the fur trade and Early Day Motion 267.

Members of the Government do not, by convention, sign any Early Day Motions as doing so is likely to breach the Ministerial Codes rules on collective responsibility.
