Write to your MP

Write to your MP – use this online service to easily contact your MP. Just enter the UK postcode where you are registered to vote and hit go:


If you’re not sure what to write take a look at the example letter below. It’s important to use your own words (form letters will be dismissed as spam and could jeopardise others’ campaigning).

You must be registered to vote to write to your MP. You can legally register at both term time and permanent addresses. If you’re not registered already, it’s really easy to do – go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. All you’ll need is your National Insurance number (if you have one).

Remember too that Rushanara Ali, MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, is on our side, and signed the open letter in the Observer, so if you’re writing to her, you’ll be giving her encouragement and ammunition!

EXAMPLE LETTER TO YOUR MP

Dear __________,

Re: Building Closures and Staff cuts at The Cass School of Art, Architecture & Design.

I am writing to you regarding the above because:

A) Write the ways in which this will affect you personally, in practical as well as emotional terms.

B) Write the ways in which this could pose a disruption to your studies personally.

C) Write the ways in which you might possibly feel that your treatment personally as a student by the University has been unfair.

What I would like to happen is for the decision to move to a single campus to be reversed, and for a new financial plan to be considered by the Board of Governors of London Metropolitan University.

I would like you, as my MP, to support me in this matter in the Commons, and to pass this letter on to the Secretary of State for Education.

Sincerely,

______
