This website was established while I was a Member of Parliament. As Parliament has been dissolved there are no Members of Parliament until after the Election on 7 May 2015.
I wish to thank my constituents, the Labour Party and my family for all your support. It has been a great privilege to work with you all on behalf of the great constituency of Aberavon.
Welcome to my website. It gives useful information of my work as member of parliament for Aberavon, including my biography, details of my latest campaigns in my press releases section, and a description of the constituency.
Please view the contacts page of this site for how best to get in touch.
Thank you for visiting the site, and I hope you find it informative and useful.
The hours of opening for constituents at my constituency office are as follows:
Monday – Friday 9.30am – 12.30pm
Please telephone 01639 897660 for further information or appointments
I hold regular advice surgeries throughout the constituency. Constituents are required to make a booking for a fifteen minute private appointment with me during which time they can raise a particular concern or problem or lobby me to support a particular cause.
I can arrange for my case-worker, Mr Les Rees, to visit individual constituents who have mobility or transport problems in their homes.
For more information about surgeries, or for a personal appointment at the Constituency Office, please contact Les Rees on 01639 897660 Monday to Friday 10.00am to 12.00 noon.
For all other constituency enquiries please contact my constituency office manager, Rachel Taylor 01639 897666.
I am keen to meet people, organisations and businesses. For further details contact John Slater, Community Liaison Officer 01639 897660 Monday to Friday 10.00am to 12.00 noon.
BCS The Chartered Institute for IT have announced the winners of the 2010 Web Awards. Dr Hywel Francis MP was shortlisted in the Accessibility category in conjunction with AbilityNet, a registered national charity with over 20 years experience helping disabled people adapt and adjust their information and communications technology.
The Judges looked for sites that successfully engage, excite, provide information and encouraged two-way communication between MPs and their constituents.
Hywel Francis says,
'I welcome any comments on how to improve my website especially to improve access for people with disabilities.'
This website is funded from Parliamentary allowances and complaints about content should be made initially to the Director General of Resources, Department of Resources, (formerly Department of Finance and Administration) House of Commons, London.
