Andrew Turner was first elected to represent the Isle of Wight in Parliament in 2001. He has always taken an active part in Parliamentary debates and proceedings, including questions to the Prime Minister and Secretaries of State for Goverrnment departments. His speaking and voting record is impressive, particularly as the Isle of Wight has more constituents than any other seat in the UK, with a workload to match.
Andrew was also voted by his colleagues to serve on two influential Select committees. You can read about their work here :

Andrew also chaired Parliamentary debates in the secondary debating chamber of Westminster Hall and presided over Committees which sit to look at proposed new legislation in detail.
