As we come to the end of August here is an update on Christopher Pincher MP.
Over the summer the Tamworth MP’s office has been focussing on helping residents with standard queries and particularly Chris, who has taken time away to get medical support, has nonetheless remained personally focussed on urgent passport problems brought on by the COVID backlog, the proposed closure of Barclays Bank in Tamworth town centre and the continued concerns about the future of the George Bryan Centre. The team has also focussed on planning questions, GP services & energy costs and Chris has kept in regular touch with the team.
He is keen to do as much as he can to support mental health groups, both locally and nationally, given the importance this issue has on everyday lives and its effects on many people. That is one of the reasons he has taken such a long term interest in the future of mental health services in Tamworth. He is using the opportunity of the backbenches to ask Ministers official parliamentary questions on these issues, as well as on many more such as housing, support for energy bills and healthcare in Tamworth.
Alongside this background update, Chris said “I appreciate that a lot of people have contacted me, and I am grateful for those messages. I have been away over the summer recess seeking and undergoing medical support and I will respond to those messages just as soon as I can. In the meantime, my office has been working full throttle on casework enquiries and all constituents should continue to email, write, and telephone me in the normal way.”
