Greg Clark: Yes, councils should take the opportunities to be innovative. My hon. Friend and...
On Sunday (7th February) The Crown in Sydenham played host to a PubAid Quiz and I took up the role of quizmaster. The event was part of a national challenge by PubAid to break the world record for the largest multi-venue quiz. It was estimated that 30,000 pub goers would join the bid for the World Record and raise £100,000. More than 20 other MPs also acted as quizmasters for the event in their...
John Howell (Henley) (Con):I congratulate my right hon. Friend on his pragmatic approach to these issues. He rightly points out that demographic pressures affect different areas in different ways.

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.

You will also need to include proof that you are a constituent - the postcode of your house will suffice.
