Welcome to my website

I am really proud to have represented the people of Newcastle in Parliament for the last thirteen years.
When I was elected in 2001, I was  the first MP here for well over a century actually to have been
born and bred in our town. Since then, I have tried my best to help with the issues that matter to you,
be it national policy, local projects or individual concerns.

I hope this website gives a flavour of that work, as well as being a useful guide to our local community.
If you have any comments, or any issues you want to raise, please just get in touch – and likewise if
you want your local group, project or event highlighted here.

Best wishes
