I am honoured to have been elected as the Member of Parliament for the Devizes Constituency at the 2010 General Election and will do my utmost to repay your trust.  I hope that this site will give you a good idea of what I stand for and believe in.  I think it is very important that everyone involved in politics works to make their views and the democratic process as transparent and accessible as possible, so please do look around the site, let me have your feedback and contact me if you would like more information on anything. 

Voting has now closed.  Thousands of votes have been received for many wonderful Independent Shops in the towns and villages across the Devizes Constituency and these are now being counted.  The winners of each category will soon be announced so please check back here to see if your favourite Independent Shop has won.
