Don Foster MP*

National Issues

Opening Up Local Government

Don served on the committee studying the new Local Government Bill. He is seeking to persuade the government to allow greater flexibility in the way local councils are allowed to organise themselves and the way they can raise money for local projects.

He is also seeking to ensure that local councils are more 'open' so that they have to listen to and take into account the views of local residents.

Pensions and OAPS

Along with his Liberal Democrat colleagues in parliament Don has protested about the government's miserly 75p per week increase for pensioners.

Don believes that pensioners deserve a better deal.


Don has undertaken a National Health Service survey in the Bath constituency. Contacting 20,000 local residents has provided substantial information to raise health issues in Parliament.


MEP Graham Watson works closely with Don Foster to ensure all European issues are raised in Brussels and/or Westminster as is appropriate.
