A personal message from Graham:
I'm enjoying being in Parliament and am immensely proud to represent Beverley and Holderness. I promised to work hard when I was elected as your MP and I have taken up literally hundreds of issues on behalf of local people. Please let me know how you think I'm doing (good or bad) and together we can improve local services and create a better society for everyone.
I have informal surgeries nearly every week and welcome calls, faxes, letters and emails. Come and say hello at my weekly street surgeries or write to me, Graham Stuart MP, at the House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA. You can also sign up to my e-news which will allow you to keep up to date with all the local campaigns I'm involved in and, most importantly, let me know your views. In the meantime, keep visiting my website for the latest news.
