Top tips for meeting your MP

WaterAid supporter Mark Barker meets MP Fiona Bruce. WaterAid

Your MP works for you. It’s their job to represent your views, so it’s important that they know what those views are.

They can influence the Government on your behalf, on international issues as well as local ones – and you have the power to make them do it. Visiting your MP in person is the best way to make sure they know how they can play their part in a world where everyone everywhere has clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

Mark (pictured above), visits his MP Fiona Bruce every World Toilet Day (19 November) to make sure she never forgets the importance of the humble loo. Fiona is on the International Development Committee, which means she helps to scrutinise the work of the Department for International Development, so Mark’s visits help make sure we have a key ally in Parliament.
