Help From Your MP
Peter has surgeries with constituents on Fridays. This is run on an appointment system - you can email (including your name and address) at email@example.com Alternatively, our specialist caseworker, Stella Pentecost, can see you Monday - Thursday. Please use firstname.lastname@example.org for casework.
His constituency office is at,
99 Church Road
TEL: 01273 933380
We can only accept casework from constituents living in Hove, Portslade or Hangleton. If you send emails or letters please provide a confirmation address. We cannot act on behalf of residents in another constituency. You should always make contact with your own Member of Parliament.
What issues can’t we usually deal with?
If you have a problem which isn’t the responsibility of central government, such as your local council, you should contact the local councillor. If you have tried to seek support without success we may be able to look into the matter for you.
There are some things my office cannot do, these include;
Give legal advice or interfere with ongoing legal proceedings
Offer consumer or contract advice
Offer debt advice or advice on financial services
Become involved in disputes with other individuals
Requests to sign or witness official documents
Peter can only sign passports or official documents if he knows you personally, in line with the guidance issued with the application form. It isn’t enough to ‘know of you’ and MPs will usually apply a high bar of personal knowledge of the constituent before agreeing to sign official documents.
