I have had a busy day in the Constituency today.

This morning I visited Tottington Primary School and answered questions from around a hundred children who I always find ask the most perceptive of questions!

I have spent the whole of the afternoon down at Gigg Lane at the Mental Health conference organised by Rethink and the Bury Carers Group. I attended a similar albeit smaller and shorter event during the general election campaign and it was good to be able to return and spend more time discussing the problems facing those with mental health illnesses.

As soon as I returned from there I spent over two hours with a packed surgery dealing with the usual range of personal problems that are typical of an M.P.’s surgery.
