"I was honoured to be returned as Member of Parliament for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich last Friday and delighted to be given the added bonus of an increased majority. I would like to thank everyone for the confidence that they have shown in me and for the great support for which I am enormously appreciative.
During the election campaign, my team and I visited every part of the constituency on at least one occasion – from Palgrave and Metfield in the North, Kesgrave and North Ipswich in the South, Wickham Market in the East, Cotton in the West and many more in between. I was very pleased that the election period allowed me to give my undivided attention to residents as well as giving me the opportunity to listen to people's views and have numerous conversations which will help me to better represent you over the next five years.
I would also like to thank everyone who has supported me during the five years of the last Parliament as well as during the weeks of the election campaign and, of course, my thanks go to everyone that voted for me in the General Election. I am also enormously grateful for the hundreds of messages of support and encouragement that I have received.
In the months and years ahead, my priority will always be to represent the people of Central Suffolk and North Ipswich to the best of my ability. I shall be fulfilling my promises to support our NHS throughout the constituency, to protect Suffolk's countryside and to work with County Council colleagues to improve broadband coverage and mobile phone reception in our County.
It is an enormous honour and privilege to be elected to represent the residents of Central Suffolk and North Ipswich again in Parliament and I shall do my utmost to fulfil the trust that has been placed in me and continue to work hard and do my best for all my constituents."

It is hard to deliver that when we have a taxpayer-funded NHS and a social care system in which many people now have to pay for their own care. In looking for a...
Offensive Weapons Bill: Ipswich-London Rail Fares (15 Oct 2018)
Daniel Poulter: I thank my hon. Friend’s welcome news on capping rail fares, but does he not also agree that it is difficult for customers to disaggregate the cost of the fare—those in Ipswich are very high per mile by national standards—from reliability and speed of service? Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
