Getting in touch
I'm always interested to hear what people in my constituency think, so please get in touch by using the contact details on the right.
If you'd like my help on a personal issue, then read the next section before making contact, as it will help you to know what I can and can't do.
"The staff at your office are polite and prompt. They always made me feel at ease each time I contacted the office."
- Rose, Lordshill
What I can help with
As your MP I can investigate problems you may be experiencing with either central or local government or with public agencies. Some of the more common problem areas are listed below together with links to relevant web sites. It's worth checking out the web site before contacting me as it may give you the information or help that you need.
I am only allowed to take up issues for people who either live or work in the Southampton Test constituency. If you're not sure if this is the case, you can check by postcode on websites like WriteToThem . You should also make sure that if this is a council issue, that you contact your local councillor first. If they can't help you, I may be able to, but they should be your first point of contact.
