The Henley constituency runs from near the edge of Bicester in the north to the edge of Reading in the south skirting Oxford to the east. It covers some 270 square miles and has around 77,000 voters. It includes some of the area covered by Cherwell District Council and some of the area covered by South Oxfordshire District Council. It is a largely rural constituency with only two major towns - Henley on Thames and Thame. The River Thames defines a large part of the boundary of the constituency.

The Boundary Commission proposals make few changes to the constituency removing no wards and adding three - two from the Banbury constituency and one from the Oxford West and Abingdon constituency.

One of the joys of this constituency is the range of different events and activities with which I am able to be involved. You can access these by going to the map page and then clicking on your own town or village. Many of these events demonstrate the enormous public spirited nature of the people of this area and the generosity in time and money they show to the charity and voluntary sectors. I am pleased to have been able to support many of these activities.

Election on 8 June 2017

At the General Election on 8 June 2017 I was returned as the MP for the Henley constituency.  I am honoured to have a majority of 22,294 over my nearest rival.  I am conscious that a large number of people have put their trust in me as their MP and I look forward to repaying that trust with the work I do in Parliament and in the constituemcy.
