Dr Dan was delighted to visit Barking Village Hall for the annual parish meeting, where he discussed a number of issues with the residents, such as the Government’s support for faster broadband in rural areas, his work in Parliament to support farming, and the need to provide more community-focussed health and social care to look after our growing ageing population in Suffolk. Since being elected as your MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich in 2010 Dan’s main priority has been to meet with residents from all parts of his constituency in order to hear their views and help with their problems as well as update them on the work he is doing in both in the constituency and in Westminster.
Dan always enjoys the opportunity to meet with residents directly, and to hear their views as well as to update them on the work he is doing as your MP for Central for Suffolk and North Ipswich. He would like to extend his thanks to Parish Clerk Rosemary Cochrane for helping to organise the event, along with the Chair of Barking Parish Council, Cllr Michael Smith and all of those who attended. He looks forward to his next Meet Your MP event.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
