I'm Dr Dan Poulter and for the past 8 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,





Dr Dan Poulter

Daniel Poulter: My hon. Friend mentioned this earlier. From a tenant’s perspective, one of the main challenges is the issue of serious harm and how it is defined. The threshold for serious harm often relates to something that might cause a danger to life or safety. If we are talking about having civilised housing conditions that are free from damp and fit for human habitation, we need to have a lower...

Housing Associations — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (12 Jun 2019)
Daniel Poulter: The hon. Gentleman is making a good speech with many good points. On his earlier point about accountability in the context of having a more effective national ombudsman, given that we all, I hope, accept that social housing is a social good and, in many respects, a public service, the out-and-out free market approach that has been taken to its provision has not been effective and there is...
