I'm Dr Dan Poulter and for the past 7 years, it has been my privilege to be your dedicated and hard working local MP. I live locally near Framlingham, am a committed community campaigner and the people of Suffolk will always be my first priority.

I'm not a career politician and am a great believer in MPs having experience of working in the real world. So, when time permits, I continue to work on a part time basis as an NHS hospital doctor. It is the real life experience gained from my work as a doctor that helps to make me a better MP.

I care deeply about Suffolk and want to secure a better future for everyone in our community. But I can only do that with your help. That is why I am asking for your vote, to help me to continue to secure a better future for you, for your children and grandchildren.

Please feel free to get in touch if I can help you in any way.

Best wishes,

Dieter Helm Energy Review — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)
Daniel Poulter: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate; he makes some good points. I agree entirely with what he has just said about price, and with what the report seems to indicate. There has been a complete failure of competition in the domestic energy market; Governments always talk about it, but they have failed to deliver. There is still a predominance of the big six energy...

Leaving the EU: Tourism and the Creative Industries — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)
Daniel Poulter: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate. As a remain voter, I am sympathetic to her position, but does she agree that sometimes one of the main drivers of tourism is the exchange rate, and one thing we have seen is increased tourism as a result of decreased value of the pound against the euro and other currencies, perhaps as a direct consequence of that Brexit vote? I know she...
