Christmas Statement - December 2020

The last year has been enormously challenging with the COVID-19 pandemic and the way it has affected all of our lives. Across the UK, tens of thousands of people are testing positive and hundreds are dying daily. For these reasons, it is important to follow all the guidance. I know that there are many misleading conspiracy theories circulating about COVID-19 and vaccines - please do not be misled by them.
Hopefully, in 2021, with the increasing availability of vaccines, we will be able to return to something resembling normal life. Although all of our celebrations may be more restricted than we would like, I would like to take this opportunity to send everybody best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
My office will be closed over the Christmas period. If any constituent has a problem, below are some useful contacts in an emergency:
