MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD ON THE WELSH NHS

 For a number of years I have been campaigning about the state of the NHS in Wales.People in Monmouthshire have also been stopped by the Welsh Government from getting treatment in England. I believe this state of affairs is unacceptable and have spoken out about this a number of times including in Parliament and in my last e-newsletter here.

MP against more Assembly powers following referendum

Monmouth MP David Davies has welcomed the result of the Scottish referendum but expressed concerns that it could lead to large amounts of extra powers being given to the Welsh Assembly.

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SYRIA AND IRAQ

I was strongly opposed to military action in Syria and voted and spoke against the Government position on this issue. In considering military action in Parliament I ask myself if the people against whom action is proposed pose a threat to the UK and if the action we are taking is likely to lead to a better situation for the population of that country.

Military action against ISIS - where I stand

Last year I voted against taking military action in Syria because I was concerned that doing so could lead to all kinds of unforeseen consequences. We are now seeing that some of those fighting against Assad in Syria are intent on creating an extremist Islamic state encompassing other nations. In the areas of Syria and Iraq where ISIS, or IS have taken control religious minorities face vicious persecution and death.

38 Degrees: An Update

I have been informed by the leadership of 38 degrees that over 200 constituents would like to talk to me about my views on the leadership of 38 degrees and the NHS in Wales.I am more than happy to speak to people living in Monmouthshire about my criticism of 38 Degrees and the NHS in Wales. Please see my open letter to constituents below:

38 Degrees: A truly "independent" campaign group?

Supporters of 38 Degrees have been told to send me standard emails complaining about comments I made in the House of Commons last week.I stand by everything I said and wish only to make clear that my criticisms are directed entirely at the funders and paid organisers, not the many members of the public who sign their petitions.
