OXFORD East MP Anneliese Dodds said she and her staff dealt with more than 10,000 cases and sent 21,700 emails to constituents in the last year.

Ms Dodds has published her annual report for 2018/19 summarising what she has done as an MP in that period – a time dominated by Brexit negotiations.

She said she remained worried about the implications of a no deal Brexit on Oxford employers, including MINI in Cowley and its owners, BMW.

Ms Dodds said: “This has been a difficult and, at times, chaotic year in Parliament, overshadowed by the Government’s failures on Brexit, and its inability to show leadership on the big challenges facing our country: from low productivity, wage stagnation, and squeezed living standards, to the immediate creative solutions needed to tackle the climate emergency."

She added: “In spite of this, it remains a great privilege to be able to represent all the diverse communities of Oxford East in Parliament, and to stand up for better quality housing, social care, education, green technologies and jobs that could genuinely transform lives.”

Ms Dodds’ report notes she opened 10,655 cases, sent 21,748 emails and 2,469 letters to constituents.

She continued: “I would like to say a big thank you to all the local advice centres, charities, local law firms, local councillors and government and statutory authorities who have assisted my casework team and helped get positive results for my constituents.

“Above all I am very grateful to my staff who have done their very best to help people contacting me with their issues.”

She regularly organises constituency surgeries across her constituency in Blackbird Leys, East Oxford, Barton, Rose Hill, amongst other place.

She said she has seen more than 250 constituents at those surgeries – with people seeking help on issues including worries about Brexit and the environment and concerns about security for the Windrush generation. End-of-life arrangements were also brought up by some constituents.

She said her help had resulted in wins including getting city children in schools when otherwise they would not have had a place; intervening so that East Oxford Cricket Club kept its home at Lincoln College’s sportsground, and helping a family keep their home after Universal Credit miscalculations.
