THIS IS A LEGACY WEBSITE.  IT IS FROZEN DURING THE GENERAL ELECTION.  During the dissolution of Parliament there are no MPs. However, for urgent casework, you can still contact me here.  The constituency includes the City of Lichfield, Burntwood, Alrewas, Hammerwich, Kings Bromley, the Ridwares, Abbots Bromley, Longdon, Streethay, Yoxall, Whittington, Barton under Needwood, and other villages.  Around 100,000 people in all.

I was first elected Member of Parliament for the Mid Staffordshire constituency, which included the City of Lichfield, in 1992 after first having a career as a broadcaster and then in broadcast engineering and management. In 1997, the constituency was changed and renamed back to ‘Lichfield’ – the original Lichfield Parliamentary Constituency goes back to 1305 and was one of the very first – and I have remained the MP for Lichfield ever since. In the 2019 General Election, I won 64.5% of the total vote out of a field of 5 candidates.
