Burnham-On-Sea MP holds her 300th surgery since being elected

Burnham-On-Sea's MP Tessa Munt has this week held her 300th surgery since being elected in 2010.

The MP says one of her key promises before being elected was to be as accessible as possible to local people and to listen to concerns and help with problems.

She therefore runs 11 regular surgeries every month in Burnham-On-Sea, Highbridge, Cheddar, Axbridge, Glastonbury, Street, Meare, Shepton Mallet, Chilcompton, Wells and Wedmore.

In addition to these, she also runs extra village surgeries and home visits throughout the year, most of which take place when parliament is on recess.

Tessa says completing 300 surgeries in 27 months greatly exceeds what most MPs and added: "Being an MP is all about people and it is my duty to be out there meeting and listening to as many constituents as possible and to do my best to help them with their problems. For example, nearly all questions I ask of Ministers in the House of Commons are the result of a constituent's concern I have picked up."
