I have welcomed the Chancellor's Spending Review and Autumn Statement. It delivers on the promise the Conservative Party made to the British people that we would put their security first by: Protecting our economic security – taking the difficult decisions to live within our means and bring our debts down. The public spending plans set out in the Spending Review mean Britain will reach a...

The Henley constituency runs from near the edge of Bicester in the north to the edge of Reading in the south skirting Oxford to the east. It covers some 270 square miles and has around 77,000 voters. It includes some of the area covered by Cherwell District Council and some of the area covered by South Oxfordshire District Council. It is a largely rural constituency with only two major towns - Henley on Thames and Thame. The River Thames defines a large part of the boundary of the constituency.
The Boundary Commission proposals make few changes to the constituency removing no wards and adding three - two from the Banbury constituency and one from the Oxford West and Abingdon constituency.

At the General Election on 7 May 2015 I was returned as the MP for the Henley constituency. I am honoured to have a majority of 25,375 over my nearest rival. I am conscious that a large number of people have put their trust in me as their MP and I look forward to repaying that trust over the next 5 years.
I frequently publish a number of e newsletters to keep members of the constituency who have given me their e mail addresses informed of my activities here and in Westminster. These include newsletters to parish councils and newsletters to the general public. If you would like to subscribe for any of these please send an e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word Subscribe in the headline. You will also need to include proof that you are a constituent - the postcode of your house will suffice.
