2 - Meet with your MP

You may decide that the easiest way to find out what your MP really thinks is to speak to them face to face. In this case, you could go along to one of their regular surgeries to question them directly. Most MPs hold these sessions, at which they are available in different places within their constituency for constituents to meet and discuss problems with them. Details are usually advertised in local papers and in such places as public libraries. Your MPís local party office will also be able to tell you the next surgery date.

It is worth bearing in mind at these sessions that your MP will probably be well practised at evading the question and setting the terms of the discussion. Donít let them. Stick to simple, direct questions about sanctions as you see them and it should be possible both to find out your MPís opinion and, if it differs from yours, to get your point across. After
the meeting, you might write to your MP to thank them for their time and to make it clear that this issue remains highly significant for you.
