You are welcome to browse this website, which is a record of my service as the Member of Parliament for Kingston & Surbiton from 1997 to 2015. During that time I conducted more advice sessions for constituents than any other London MP.

I am standing again for election in June 2017, and you can find out what I am doing at

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








Your choice on Thursday - me or the Conservative

Please vote for me on Thursday because:

  • I am the local candidate - I have lived here for 20 years - and you can trust me to fight for our area
  • I have record of protecting our NHS and fighting for local schools (see this as well).
  • Only Lib Dems can stop an extreme coalition of either UKIP with the Tories, or Labour with the SNP.

Reasons for not voting Conservative:

  • The Conservatives would just go too far, with £50 billion of extra cuts
  • The Conservatives are unable to win outright and are already flirting with a deal with UKIP
  • The Conservatives have plumped for an unknown candidate from Westminster, who has no local record


Nick Clegg in Surbiton

Ed Davey champions renewable energy and the best deals for consumers

Ed Davey is proud of what he has achieved as Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change.

Under his guidance over £37 billion has been invested in renewable energy sources, such as wind and tidal power. As a result 460,000 ‘green’ jobs have been created and the low carbon economy has been growing since 2010.

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.

Climate change – Ed Davey’s role in reducing carbon emissions globally

As Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Davey has taken on a global leadership role.

Having set targets for the power industry at home he is pleased to be able to announce that the UK now has the least energy intensive economy in the G7. Overall greenhouse gas emissions have fallen by 15% since 2010, and the UK is now committed to reduce by at least 40% by 2030. Coal production has dropped by 10%.

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.
