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 Central Suffolk in order to hear their views and help with their problems.

Dan always enjoys the opportunity to meet with residents, and to hear their views as well as to update them on the work he is doing as your MP. He would like to extend his thanks to Honorary Parish Clerk Nicholas Redman for inviting him to attend. He looks forward to his next Meet Your MP event.

Dan also addressed specific concerns relating to the possible effect on school bus services if the proposed Saxmundham Free School is given the green light following consultation with local parents.
