I must say I was very surprised to read the two letters from Elaine Carey and Gordon Williams regarding Andrew Tyrie and his PA on lack of response.
For the past few months I have been in touch with Mr Tyrie’s PA via email and telephone calls (of which she always returns calls) and who arranged for me to attend one of his surgeries in Chichester in February this year, on an ongoing subject, which Mr Tyrie is trying to resolve to the best of his ability, but I know he is having a tough time in getting results, but not through lack of trying of which I am very grateful.
I have nothing but admiration for the very efficient and charming manner in which Val Crawford has dealt with my concerns.
She always responds to my emails within days (usually by return) of receiving them of which I think is quite remarkable considering the amount of work she has to do, let alone the number of letters and emails she receives on behalf of Mr Tyrie on a weekly basis.
So I say leave Val alone, she is a little marvel – and I think Mr Tyrie is lucky to have such a girl!
