Your MP is your representative in the national parliament and it is his/her responsibility to ensure that the views of his/her constituents are conveyed and publicised in that assembly both through speaking on the floor of the House and by voting on motions and laws put before the House. Your MP bears the duty of representing your views and executing these through his/her voting patterns in the legislature.
You can check the voting record of your MP at: www.publicwhip.org.uk. The website lists MP voting records and is searchable by MP or by subject matter.
Where you feel your MP has not satisfactorily represented your views, you can write to him/her and ask for a written response on why s/he voted the way s/he did.
You can also visit your MP in his/her constituency office during surgery hours and discuss in person any concerns or objections you have regarding their voting or speaking record.
Where your concerns are matched by others in your constituency, or your ward, organise a meeting and invite your MP or councillors to listen to you and your fellow neighbours. Your MP and councillors, by having a clearer idea of how strongly you feel about a subject, will be in a better position to represent you.
MPs and councillors are your representatives in local and national government. Help them represent you better by regularly informing them of your views.
