As you may know Parliament has now been dissolved and a General Election will take place on May 7th. This means there is no longer an MP for our constituency (or any constituency) until the election has taken place.
Therefore if you are contacting me regarding specific assistance you require from an MP, unfortunately I cannot take up your case at present. Casework is extremely important to me but there are strict rules ensuring sitting MPs do not have unfair advantages over other candidates whilst the election is taking place. If your issue is a local matter (waste, social services, education, town centres etc.), I recommend contacting your local councillor. You can do this by entering your postcode into this Tameside Council website: http://www.tameside.gov.uk/forms/wards.php3
If it is a more general matter, I recommend contacting Tameside Citizen’s Advice on 0161 342 5005.
If you are still in need of assistance after May 7th and I have been re-elected, please get in touch with me again.
If you are contacting me about the General Election – such as an enquiry as to my view on a matter – then thank you. I will try and get back to you as soon as possible.
With best wishes
Please note: This site was established while I was a Member of Parliament. As Parliament has been dissolved there are no MPs until after the Election on 7th May 2015.
