"Peter was first elected as MP for Worcester in 1992 and then for the new Mid Worcestershire seat in 1997. He lives in the county with his wife, Julia. Their children were brought up in Worcestershire and went to local schools but both have now flown the nest.

"Julia is Peter's secretary, working from his office in the county and from the House of Commons. She is always available on this local number: 01905 763952. She also makes appointments for his regular advice surgeries in Evesham and Droitwich Spa.
