Living near Framlingham, Dr Dan always buys locally. He is a great supporter of our local shops and services, and of Suffolk's farmers and food & drink producers, who play a vital role in our local economy.

Dr Dan has always been a strong voice for Suffolk's farmers in Parliament and has supported them in backing the campaign for a fair price for a pint of milk. He has also campaigned for more honest food labelling so that food can only be labelled 'British' if it is farmed in Britain.

Dr Dan has worked hard to keep open vital shops and services including Stradbroke Post Office and Barclays Bank in Eye. He will continue to listen to residents and support their interests in supporting vital local shops and facilities in rural areas.
