AS time passes, more and more of my communication with constituents in Birkenhead, and indeed people more widely, happens through my website.
Often my website is the first port of call for those wishing to find out my views on particular issues, see what I have most recently done in Parliament, or just simply to make contact. I try and include information about all my activities in Birkenhead and Parliament, and keep it regularly updated with copies of my press articles and details of campaigns I’m involved with.
The website is therefore becoming a more important method through which I can communicate with voters.
I would like to think that www.frankfield.co.uk is at least an above average example of an MP’s website, though that unfortunately does not say a great deal about MPs’ websites in general. There are of course improvements that can be made to make it a more efficient tool to communicate with voters in Birkenhead. As the site is becoming more and more important to my work, I am currently thinking about how I can make it more effective.
This week therefore I am, somewhat cheekily, using this column to find out what you would most like to see on my website. How could it be improved? What sort of information is most useful on the site? How could the site be easier to use? I would be most grateful for your ‘answers on an e-mail’!
