What your MP can do for you

PLEASE NOTE: As Parliament will be dissolved from 3 May there are no MPs until after the General Election on 8 June 2017. 

When Parliament resumes, MPs can offer advice and assistance on matters for which the UK Parliament is responsible, such as the NHS, pensions, benefits, tax, immigration, energy, defence and data protection. They cannot interfere in court decisions and they can't help with private disputes. Before contacting an MP you should check whether your issue might fall under the remit of your local council and should, therefore, be directed to your local councillor (see previous page) instead.

Here are some links to the UK Parliament site which explain the role of a Member of Parliament in greater detail.
