Thank you for visiting my website.
The Coronavirus is the biggest threat this country has faced in decades – and this country is not alone. All over the world we are seeing the devastating impact of this invisible killer.
Our wonderful and dedicated NHS staff have been at the frontline of our efforts against COVID-19, and we are extremely grateful for all their hard work, as well as the tremendous efforts of the many local community volunteers.
Condolences and sympathy must go to those who have tragically lost loved ones to this terrible disease. However, we must continue to be vigilant and follow the guidance. Stay Safe. The battle is not yet won.
We are now beginning to see some relaxation in the lockdown and businesses opening up. The Government has also provided an unprecedented level of financial support to help individuals, protect jobs and aid businesses during the pandemic.
The Government is, of course, looking ahead and in June the Prime Minister launched “A New Deal For Britain” with exciting new projects to unleash Britain’s potential. I share his enthusiasm for the opportunities in the coming months.
My Parliamentary office remains open full time and my staff are working from home. I have been working from home in Barnehurst and have been adapting to new ways of working. I have held daily virtual conference calls, and continued to carry out all of my Parliamentary duties including constituency casework, speaking in the Commons, sitting on committees, meeting and speaking with Ministers online, submitting Parliamentary questions and voting online or by proxy. With the ease of lockdown, I have also recommenced some constituency visits.
I am always pleased to hear from constituents and to take up any issues or problems that you may have, so please do get in touch.
Rt Hon Sir David Evennett MP
Member of Parliament for Bexleyheath and Crayford
