Sadiq would like to be able to help everyone who contacts him but unfortunately it is not always possible. Where possible he will try to help and where he can’t he will try to find someone who can.
First of all, Sadiq can only help his constituents. This is because Members of Parliament represent people within a single constituency and MPs cannot interfere in the relationship between other MPs and their own constituents.
To find out if Sadiq is your MP please visit www.parliament.uk.
Sadiq can sometimes help if you have a problem with work carried out by central government departments. For example he may be able to help with:
• Tax problems involving HM Revenue & Customs (but not council tax, which is paid to your local authority).
Sadiq cannot guarantee to get the result that you would like but he will do what he can to help.
Sadiq cannot intervene in private disputes between neighbours, with an employer, with family matters, with companies who have sold you faulty goods and he is unable to interfere with decisions made by the courts.
If you have a different problem, then Sadiq may be able to put you in touch with the right person. Often the Citizen’s Advice Bureau (CAB) is a good place to start. For more information and to find your local CAB office please visit http://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/.
For free, independent advice and information on a housing issue you may find it useful to visit Shelter's website here.
As a Member of Parliament, and not the Council, Sadiq has very little influence over Council services such as street cleaning, rubbish collection, council tax or council housing. This is because the Council is a devolved power which is not answerable to individual MPs. Whilst Sadiq will be more than happy to make representations on your behalf in these matters, there is a limit to what he can achieve.
