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.
 

 

Rt Hon Ed Davey, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change

 

My speech to Conference, October 2014

Conference, Liberal Democrats are fundamentally different from other parties.

We are the challengers of vested interests. Challengers of the establishment. Challenging for the opportunities people thirst for.

When the Tories starved our schools of investment in the 80s and 90s, Paddy Ashdown broke the Conservative-Labour taboo on tax rises – so we could pay for better education.

Tackling climate change

This article first appeared in Liberal Democrat Voice:

I’m writing from the Climate Change Summit in New York, hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. While Liberal Democrats don’t need reminding just how much of a threat climate change is – from the increased risks of flooding, to the impact on the world’s poorest – I thought it timely to give you an update on the progress we’ve made and what comes
next.

The quiet skills and business revolution: the apprenticeship boom.

Apprenticeships are booming in the Royal Borough – and across Britain.

"Kingston & Surbiton is my home and I want the best for it"

An interview with Ed Davey in Kingston Voice:
 
Ed – you’re a Cabinet Minister, local MP, and a father of 2 small children. How do you manage to fit it all in?
 
Well it helps I’m the MP for the area where I live!

Cutting care costs

Pensioners and their families will no longer be forced to sell their homes to pay for care, thanks to action by Liberal Democrats in the Government.

329 fewer people claiming JSA in Kingston is “no accident”

Edward Davey called today’s positive labour market figures in Kingston & Surbiton “no accident” and said Liberal Democrats in Government were delivering the recovery fairly. 

Britain is getting its energy policy right

Ed Davey has welcomed reports that show Britain is tackling climate change and taking steps to break up the Big Six Energy firms.

A study by PwC shows the UK has become one of the world’s eco-friendly countries in the past year after a record 34 per cent jump in renewable energy generation.

Why I don’t want Scotland to vote for independence

Scottish independence may seem irrelevant to some people. Here we are in Surbiton. We don’t have a vote in the referendum. We’re nearer to France than we are to Scotland. It won’t really affect us.
