Information about the role of MPs and who your MP is. Also gives details on who the MP is for Beverley and Holderness, Brigg and Goole, East Yorkshire, Haltemprice and Howden and Hull West and Hessle.
The role of a MP is to help their constituents by advising on problems (particularly those that arise from the work of government departments), representing the concerns of their constituents in Parliament (House of Commons) and acting as a figurehead for the local area.
MPs' duties in Parliament include participating in debates and voting on legislation and other matters. They may also be members of committees examining new laws or the work of government departments. Some have a role as a minister in government or a spokesperson in opposition.
MPs have responsibilities to three main groups: their constituents, Parliament and their political party. One MP is elected to the House of Commons by each of the UK’s 600+ constituencies.
The East Riding of Yorkshire is divided into 5 constituencies, each of which has its own Member of Parliament (MP).
