    Most MPs are also members of committees, which look at issues in detail, from government policy and new laws, to wider topics like human rights.

    Working in their constituency
    In their constituency, MPs often hold a ‘surgery’ in their office, where local people can come along to discuss any matters that concern them.

    MPs also attend functions, visit schools and businesses and generally try to meet as many people as possible. This gives MPs further insight and context into issues they may discuss when they return to Westminster.

    Constituent:

    The UK is divided into 650 different regions called constituencies where the public elect candidates to be their MP. A ‘constituent’ is the name given to every person who lives within or is eligible to vote in a constituency.

    Code of Conduct
    The Code of Conduct helps MPs understand their responsibilities to Parliament and the public. In addition to guidance, the Code also requires all Members to declare outside interest, like paid work or gifts.

    Westminster is the second Chamber of the House of Commons which holds debate on national and local issues.
