The work of an MP centres around dealing with matters that affect people in the constituency. This means attending many local meetings and also face to face discussions with constituents, discussing issues and seeking solutions.
 
 

Then of course, there is the need to represent constituents by attending the Houses of Parliament each week, raising issues for debate directly in the chamber.

This page lists some of the speeches and questions raised by Jon in parliamentary sessions. The paragraphs listed contain the introductory text to the speech. For the full text, plus the context in which the speech was made, follow the link at the end of the paragraph.
