Dan recently enjoyed another successful ‘Meet your MP’ event at the United Free Church in Framlingham, where people of all ages had the chance to chat to me and ask about any issues affecting them, both local and national. A number of issues were discussed, such as the Government’s support for faster broadband in rural areas, Dan's work in Parliament to support our local farmers, and the need to provide more community-focussed health and social care to look after our growing ageing population in Ipswich and Suffolk.

He would like to thank Margaret Harrold for helping to organise the event, along with all those who attended.
