Andrew has provided the following update to residents on Facebook: "I don't really like sharing personal information but before I get attacked for not speaking and voting in Parliament for a few weeks, I just wanted to say I'm having an operation this week which is going to put me out of action for a few weeks.
"Whilst I won't be able to attend Parliament during this period, my team and I will be available to continue to work on casework and local issues.
"Likewise, I'll be continuing to do as many online meetings as I can.
"Nothing to worry about. Just annoyingly will be out of action for a bit."
