Following my re-election as your Member of Parliament for the City of Durham, I wish to offer my heartfelt thanks to everyone who voted for me. I will continue to work hard for Durham City, and will represent everyone in the constituency, regardless of how they cast their vote.

Parliament will resume on 18 May 2015, and I will have my office running again from this date. 

Once again, many thanks for placing your trust in me to serve you as your Member of Parliament.
