Skipton MP Julian Smith will host an online surgery this week for constituents or businesses who find it difficult to get to one of his regular surgeries around the constituency.

The session will take place between 4pm and 5pm on Friday and appointments can be made by emailing or calling 020 7219 7145.

The MP said: “Despite holding more MP surgeries in more locations than ever before, I know that in such a large constituency it can be difficult for people to travel to meet me at my regular sessions.

“This online surgery will give residents and business people who find it difficult to travel, or take the time out of their busy schedules, the opportunity to speak with me directly.”
