It was a busy day of meetings for Dr Dan on Friday 22 July, starting off with a joint meeting between Suffolk's 7 MPs and the entire Cabinet from Suffolk County Council. The meeting, hosted at BT's Adastral Park had a jam packed agenda and Dr Dan particularly welcomes the opportunity for all those elected to represent the residents of Suffolk to come together and discuss local issues collectively.
