Parliament was dissolved on 30th March 2015, and from that date I and all my colleagues in the House of Commons are no longer MPs. However, the Government still remains in place so I will continue as Secretary of State until after the election.

You are welcome to browse this website which is a record of my service as the Member of Parliament for Kingston & Surbiton from 1997. During that time I conducted more advice sessions for constituents than any other London MP.

Please contact me if you would like to help me get re-elected as your MP.

Tories wasting taxpayers’ money for school in wrong place and wrong setting

Davey demands Education Funding Agency re-think “silly” plan on new primary for Surbiton based in Kingston - and proposes alternative plan

Commenting on the news that Michael Gove’s Education Funding Agency has bought an expensive office block on Kingston High Street supposedly for a new Surbiton primary school, Ed Davey, Liberal Democrat candidate for Kingston and Surbiton, said:

“We desperately need 4 new primary schools across Kingston, but Michael Gove’s Education Funding Agency keeps spending taxpayers’ money on properties that are unsuitable and sometimes even in the wrong place. Given how urgent this is, it’s not just incompetent and wasteful, it’s frankly a betrayal of local families and their children.

Ed Davey's school places pledge

Ed Davey has launched a campaign to build four new primary schools across Chessington, Kingston, New Malden and Surbiton over the next five years.

His plan follows on from Kingston's largest ever primary school expansion completed under the last Liberal Democrat Council, which saw 315 new permanent places created and a new school, with over £68 million invested.

Who can we trust to continue fighting for our local NHS in Kingston & Surbiton?

The National Health Service is dear to all our hearts. It’s where our family members were looked after when they were at their most vulnerable and where our children were born.
 
No wonder it’s emerged as the key issue facing voters as we approach the election to choose Kingston’s next MP in May.
 
With his record of fighting for Kingston and Surbiton’s NHS, from leading the campaign to save A&E and maternity units at Kingston Hospital to his efforts to secure the funding to build the new Surbiton Health Centre, there’s no doubt that local Lib Dem Ed Davey has established his credentials as a champion for NHS services.
 

Creating more jobs and a stronger economy in Kingston & Surbiton

Ed Davey leads the battle to get the economy moving in Kingston & Surbiton

The last time we had a general election in Kingston & Surbiton, back in 2010, the economy was still reeling from Labour’s economic crisis. Unemployment was sky high, the deficit was running out of control and local residents were feeling the squeeze.
 
Now the economy is well and truly on the mend, thanks in no small part to the contribution of local MP Ed Davey and the Liberal Democrats in government.
 

“London Hospitals’ Accident & Emergency Units need the pressure taken off over-stretched ambulance paramedics” – London Lib Dem MPs

On a recent visit to the Waterloo HQ of London Ambulance Service, a delegation of London’s Liberal Democrat MPs called for major reform of the London Ambulance Service in order to free up cash for frontline ambulance crews. 

The Liberal Democrat MPs are calling for most back office functions of London’s blue-light services to be better integrated, to increase service quality to Londoners and to release funds for higher London weightings, to tackle the recruitment and retention crisis hitting London’s Ambulance Service.
 

Green energy auction paves way for 27 new renewables projects and thousands of green jobs across the UK

This article first appeared in Liberal Democrat Voice:

This morning I announced the results of the first auction for green energy generation. The results are impressive – more clean energy at lower costs.

Thanks to this first renewable electricity competition of its kind, I have offered contracts to 27 renewable energy projects across the UK.  Enough to power 1.4 million homes and save the equivalent carbon emissions of taking 2 million cars off the road.

The projects include offshore wind and onshore wind and solar, and will create thousands of green jobs.

Ed Davey’s re-zoning campaign continues

On a visit to Kingston College on Monday 26 January 2015 Ed was given a guided tour of some of the excellent workshops within the college and had a chance to meet some of the eager and driven young apprentices on various schemes.

The importance of Pupil Premium

On a recent visit to two schools in the constituency, I was very pleased to hear once again that the Liberal Democrat initiative of ‘Pupil Premium’ payments were making such a key difference to schools and the children who attend them.
