The Big Conversation


The Big Conversation 2017 - 9th Sep - 7th Oct

I hold my annual community consultation, the Big Conversation, every year to listen to people's concerns and answer questions. 

Events include Q&As, themed discussions, or just the chance for a chat at a local cafe.

What you tell me at The Big Conversation help informs what I do in Parliament.

You can also fill in my online survey to let me know your views and priorities.
