Contacting your MP

''''

MPs have public contact details so their constituents can get in touch. In most cases you can write, phone, fax or email. MPs will generally only act on behalf of their constituents, so please check you are contacting the MP who represents your constituency.

Find Your MP

Our Find your MP service can help you to find out who is your Member of Parliament and their contact details.

It also lists MPs by alphabetical name and constituency, by gender, political party and select committee membership.

Telephone

Calling with a simple question might get a faster response than writing. You will talk to a relevant office or have to leave a message. Phone the House of Commons switchboard on 020 7219 3000 and ask for your MP by name.

If you do not know their name then you can phone the House of Commons Information Office on 020 7219 4272.

You may also contact your MP through their local constituency office. Addresses and contact numbers will be listed in local libraries, town halls, an MP's personal website or through the House of Commons Information Office.

Email and web

The majority of MPs now have email addresses that you can use to contact your MP. Our directory of MPs lists all current MPs and those that have email addresses.

Many MPs also have websites and use social media. Details of these, where available, are also listed in our directory of MPs.

By letter

When writing to any MP the address to use is:

House of Commons
London
SW1A 0AA

A letter may allow you to explain yourself more clearly and in detail and the MP will have a record of your problem.

Bulk mailshots

Bulk mailshots for the House of Commons are not accepted. All bulk mailshots should be individually named, stamped and addressed to:

House of Commons
London
SW1A 0AA

Mailshots that do not comply with the bulk mailing guidance will be returned.

Fax

There is no general fax number for the House of Commons or listing of MP's fax numbers. Please telephone the MP's office first if you need to send them a fax.
