I am always happy to help Dumfries and Galloway constituents, regardless of whether or not you voted for me.

I can offer assistance with all matters for which the UK Parliament or central government is responsible, such as tax problems involving HMRC; Department for Work & Pensions problems such as benefits, pensions and National Insurance; Home Office and UK Visas & Immigration problems such as passports and immigration.
Matters can usually be resolved most promptly by sending an email outlining your situation to  Please ensure that you include as much information and documentation relevant to your case as possible, as well as your full address (including postcode) and any applicable reference numbers.  

I also run regular surgeries in Dumfries and Galloway where you will be able to discuss your case in person.  Surgeries are posted on this website and my Facebook page. Regular venues are Stranraer Library, Newton Stewart Library, Kirkcudbright Library, Castle Douglas Town Hall, Dalbeattie Town Hall, and my Constituency Office, 20 Academy Street, Dumfries, DG1 1BY.

Advice surgeries are by appointment only.  To book an appointment please contact my office by calling 01387 216109 or emailing
