James Gray, MP for North Wiltshire, has welcomed the return to normal business in Parliament and the chance to resume his usual advice surgeries after a long-enforced break due to the Covid pandemic.

Mr Gray said:

“Over the past months I have managed to keep in touch with constituents via telephone and email but there is really no substitute to face to face meetings to try and help people deal with problems and concerns. 

I have always held surgeries around the constituency on alternate Saturday mornings and have found them to be of great benefit in trying to assist people with all manner of issues ranging from bureaucratic muddles through to urgent personal and financial problems and many other things in between.  I make myself available without an appointment in a number of locations to try and ensure people can come and see me with as little difficulty as possible and I welcome the chance to help in any way I can. 

I am of course still available by phone and email, but this does not suit everyone and is not always suitable if people wish to bring in paperwork to show me.  I very much look forward to seeing people in my forthcoming surgeries at Cricklade and Malmesbury on Saturday 25th September.”
