Dr Dan in Westminster: Reporting Back

Dr Dan has been representing his constituents in Westminster in a number of ways by being a part of the Conservative Party implementing their manifesto commitments and scrutinising legislation in a number of areas.

As a member of the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee he has been examining Government policy in this area and recently worked as part of a cross party group of backbench MPs to put into law the Government's commitment to net zero carbon emissions.

Dr Dan in this capacity also called a debate in Westminster Hall about the future challenges facing the energy industry and to call for the energy market to work better for consumers, particularly the vulnerable and those on fixed incomes.

Dr Dan also takes an active interest in the field of Mental Health and asked in the chamber a question to the prisons minister about the possibility of initiating a national scheme for critical time interventions for prisoners with mental health problems.
