News from Greg Hands’s Weekly Surgery

This week at Greg Hands’s surgery six constituents brought their concerns with a number of issues, including urban foxes and waiting times for entrepreneur’s visas at the UK Border Agency.

This week Greg has made representations to the Department of Work and Pensions on behalf of a pensioner from Chelsea and her concerns about the introduction of the Simple Payment Card. This card is for those who do not have a bank account and need to draw their pension. However, only selected businesses can handle the transaction and pensioners in Chelsea are compelled to travel to Battersea or Fulham Broadway. Greg has written to DWP to ask them to encourage more businesses to sign up to accept the Card.

Greg aims to assist any constituent he can with their problems involving local or central government as well as with private companies. If you would like a surgery appointment you can contact Greg’s office by emailing or calling 020 7219 5448.
