Helping constituents with problems is a very important part of my work as an MP. If you have an urgent matter and cannot wait for the next advice surgery, please contact the constituency office for help and advice.
The next advice surgery will be held on:
Friday 21 April 2017
5:00 - 6:45pm - Huyton Municipal Buildings - map
7:00 - 8:30pm - The Kirkby Centre (former Kirkby Suite) - map
A list of future surgeries can be viewed here.
What sort of advice can I give?
I can only deal with problems for you if you live in the Knowsley constituency. If you live outside this constituency you should approach your own representative. You can find out who your MP is by using the 'Find your MP' tool.
What am I not allowed to do?
There are a number of things I am not allowed to do:
- influence legal actions or court cases. For that sort of problem you should consult a qualified solicitor. I am not legally qualified so cannot give legal advice.
- instruct any Department or Agency on what they should do, nor can I instruct the local Council what to do. I can make representations on your behalf, and make sure these are taken into account.
- become involved in personal disputes between you and someone else.
The House of Commons Library publishes factsheets about the work of Parliament including one which deals specifically with the role of an MP in relation to constituents.
Who else might be able to help?
If you have a problem to do with the local council then you should contact your local councillor first. You can find out who your local councillor is by clicking here if you are in Knowsley. Alternatively you can phone Knowsley council on 0151 489 6000.
On issues to do with the European Parliament you can contact Theresa Griffin. Her contact details can be found here.
