Dissolution of 2017-2019 Parliament

Dissolution of 2017-2019 Parliament

Parliament was dissolved at 00.01 on Wednesday 6 November 2019. There are no Members of Parliament (MPs) until after the General Election. The Commissioner cannot investigate complaints about anything that takes place between 6 November and the date of the Election, 12 December 2019. And she cannot investigate complaints about the conduct of candidates during the election campaign.

During Dissolution the Commissioner cannot consider complaints about anything that took place before 6 November. If you wish to submit a complaint please wait until 16 December 2019. We will not reply to complaints received before that date: 

In the meantime, you may wish to read the rules of conduct, which can be found in paragraphs 11-18 of the Code of Conduct: https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201719/cmcode/1882/1882.pdf 

These are the only matters the Commissioner may investigate. If, having read those rules, you wish to submit a complaint, please email or write after 16 December, providing your name and postal address. It would be helpful to say clearly which of the rules you think has been broken and why. If your complaint relates to the use of a House-provided stationery, please write to the Commissioner at the House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA after 16 December, enclosing the original letter (& envelope if available). You can see the rules about House-provided stationery here: https://www.parliament.uk/documents/facilities/Accommodation-and-Logistics/Stationery-rules-March-2015.pdf (PDF PDF 774 KB)
