MP for Runnymede and Weybridge. Unfortunately I can’t respond to casework on twitter - please email me at email@example.com
We have over 1000 Park Home Residents in Runnymede and Weybridge and I won't stop campaigning to get them a fair deal. From changing Pitch Fee rises from RPI, ensuring they get the energy rebate, and reviewing commission fees - see my question to the PM today.
We're coming to #Glasgow as part of our inquiry into health assessments for benefits.
Have you had an assessment for PIP or ESA? Come and tell us how they can be improved.
We'll be at Strathclyde University on Monday 27 June from 11am-1pm.

Enjoyed joining and supporting our fantastic local University and seeing just how its alumni’s careers have taken off! Sad to see Prof Layzell retire but he passes on a University going from strength to strength and it’s great he was recognised in the recent honours!
So great to have an in-person event and be able to reconnect and chat with some of our alumni in Westminster last night!
The rail unions need to talk, not strike. But we will continue to prepare. I'm asking the @MayorofLondon to do his bit to keep London open and moving by waiving the Congestion Charge & ULEZ and pausing non-essential roadworks on rail strike days - simple moves that will go far.
It wouldn’t be #FathersDay without this classic Derek Redmond and his dad content… ❤️
Come on over to the Englefield Green Village Fair today - thank you to everyone who’s made it happen!
There have been Fairs In Weybridge before, but never anything quite like this year’s Jubilee Fair And Arts Festival, with live performances on stage, 50 stalls and a dog show!
More details here. https://www.weybridgesociety.org.uk/jubilee-fair-and-arts-festival/
A great day presenting my fairer road funding petition to @10DowningStreet with @hoorah73 and @TomCornwell_ . Thank you to everyone who supported the campaign and signed the petition. Only disappointment was not seeing Larry @Number10cat !🐈
Thank you for inviting me - I had a great time and great to talk with you all.
Good to talk to @DrBenSpencer, MP for Runnymede & Weybridge. Able to chat cross-border issues as we are in neighbouring constituencies. Also how we move forward in Surrey as regards to #LevellingUp. His manifesto and policy positions were very interesting. #Woking
The Foreign Secretary is absolutely right. This is an appalling judgment by a Kangaroo Court which all should condemn. My thoughts are with Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner and their families and I am glad the Foreign Office is doing all it can to help them.
I utterly condemn the sentencing of Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner held by Russian proxies in eastern Ukraine.
They are prisoners of war. This is a sham judgment with absolutely no legitimacy.
My thoughts are with the families. We continue to do everything we can to support them.
My roles as Chair APPG for Finland and Vice-chair APPG for Sweden provide great opportunities to call for investment into Runnymede & Weybridge. With our international and domestic connectivity, superb workforce and business base - we are the top place in the UK to invest 👇🏻
Great to be there. Important to support small brewers!
Thank you to @DrBenSpencer for attending our #MakeIt20 drop-in session yesterday in Parliament!
Given all the media speculation today about tax cuts I’ll just put this here again 👇🏻
The Conservative way to tackle the cost of living crisis is to cut taxes.
Great to attend the @UKAS reception yesterday with @scullyp speaking. Setting accreditation standards for carbon and net zero specs is a crucial component of decarbonising energy and industry. Look forward to @UKAS leading the way here globally.
Her Majesty The Queen, the first Monarch in British history to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.
To mark the beginning of the #PlatinumJubilee Celebration Weekend, a new portrait of The Queen has been released.

A few pics from the Virginia Water Jumble trail earlier today - had a great time at this fantastic community event. Thank you Michelle and team along with all the residents who made it happen.

Important to drop in and hear from parents whose children have been harmed by Sodium Valproate during pregnancy. We need to tighten up on its prescription and ensure that women of child bearing age and warned about its effects on the unborn child.
Great to meet pupils and teachers from @BishopsgateSch in Parliament yesterday - as always lots of great questions ranging from environmental issues to tackling the cost of living.
Great to speak to @Daikinuk based in Weybridge at the sustainable energy association this evening - critical to decarbonise heat to meet our net-zero target
Great to attend the Weybetter Weybridge public engagement meeting on Friday & see so many people there. I hope it’s the start of regular public engagement helping to drive this project forward. Residents want to see swift action to get the new health services built.
Getting ready for today’s advice surgery

Had a great time today at the Oatlands Village Fayre - thanks to everyone who organised it! #weybridge @WeybridgeSurrey @WeybridgeComhub
Great to set up a meeting between the fantastic Runnymede Muslim Society and @RunnymedeBC to try to help them get permanent premises for their community work and prayer. Here’s hoping we can get something sorted.
Delighted that the vital A3/M25 J10 Wisley interchange works have now been approved, making it safer and with knock on effects of reducing traffic in Runnymede and Weybridge. I’ll be speaking to National Highways to ensure disruption is minimised while works take place.
Oatlands Village Fayre this Saturday #Weybridge #Surrey #WaltonOnThames #Elmbridge
All of us can feel lonely from time to time, but sadly some people are lonely all the time. Many of us still find it hard to talk about. So, this #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek let’s break the stigma. Join @mentalhealth campaign #IveBeenThere
Following my campaign to get more space for the GPs at the Weybridge Hospital site, Surrey Heartlands have agreed to provide portacabins enabling the use of 3 more rooms on site.
This is a real improvement for residents, while I continue to press for the rebuild of the site.
Great to have the support of @DrBenSpencer on the doorstep today! Really great reception, looking forward to speaking to as many of you as I can before polling day! ✅🌳 @ReadKurtis @maxjdarby

About to start my constituency surgery, as ever on a wide range of topics!
Parliament is being prorogued today and is back in two weeks for the Queen’s speech. Lots of important legislation coming forward and much work to do nationally such as improving education, dealing with the cost of living crisis, and response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Disappointed not to have been put on Putin’s MP sanction list today. If at first you don’t succeed… #oilandgasembargo

Great to join local councillors to speak with residents in Hurst Lane regarding planning and enforcement issues.
I'll be having further discussions soon with the Housing Minister to discuss strengthening protections in the Green Belt and how we #stoproguedevelopment
Following my letter to the Secretary of State I continue to call on the Government to ensure leaseholders in Runnymede and Weybridge receive the same level of protection from Building Safety costs as those elsewhere in the country. See my question to the minister yesterday👇🏻
It was a pleasure for us to welcome Dr Ben Spencer, MP for Runnymede and Weybridge, to White Lodge today. We were able to show him the important work we do and feedback on the challenges faced by our community. Thank you for your support @DrBenSpencer 👍
Yesterday we welcomed our local MP for Runnymede and Weybridge, @DrBenSpencer to our Head Office. Dr Spencer was joined by Denise Cook from Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, UKAS Chairman Lord Lindsay and Matt Gantley, our Chief Executive.
Great to hear from residents in Weybridge Riverside this morning with our superb candidate Freddie along with @RWCA_news Discussions included the Weybridge hospital rebuild and urgent need for it to press ahead, energy costs, traffic, and support for Ukrainian refugees.
Great to be out listening to residents in Upper Longcross with our local election candidate Neill and County Cllr Jonathan Hulley and to see the new bollards in place.
