Welcome to the FAQs page, which has been designed to answer some of the most common questions I am asked.
Is Navendu my MP?
You can easily check by using the FindYourMP tool at the website of Parliament. All you need to do is type your home postcode into the relevant box. The tool can be found here
Can Navendu help if he is not my MP?
No, even if the problem you experienced happened in Stockport constituency. Very strict rules dictate that MPs can only offer assistance to people who live in and businesses that are located in the constituency they represent. The FindYourMP tool will provide details for your MP and you should then make contact with them.
What problems can Navendu help me with?
Navendu can primarily offer assistance with matters that Parliament and Central Government are responsible for. He will also try and help when a private company has caused problems to you.
Navendu is not elected to Stockport Council and has no direct control over the decisions that it makes on the various issues for which it has responsibility. These include social housing, refuse collection, education and planning decisions. For those issues you should contact your locally elected councillors in the first instance as they will be best placed to offer assistance. You can find their details and information about their advice surgeries here.
Navendu cannot intervene in ongoing legal disputes.
How long will I usually have to wait for a reply?
Navendu receives many hundreds of requests for help by email, phone, letter and at his advice surgeries. Along with his caseworkers, he works to ensure that all enquiries are dealt with as quickly as possible but please allow up to 15 working days for a response. Sometimes, with very complex cases or at times of peak demand, it may take a little longer. Emails are treated with the same priority as all other forms of communication.
If, after that time, you have not had a response to an enquiry, please resend your email.
How can I contact Navendu?
You can write to Navendu Mishra MP, House of Commons, Westminster, SW1A 0AA, email Nnavendu.firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also come along to one of his regular drop-in advice surgeries. Full details are here.
How can I get a ticket for a tour of Parliament?
Navendu is always happy to try and help arrange a tour of Parliament for his constituents. Tours booked by MPs are free but are also very popular and booked up many months in advance. If you would like Navendu to try and arrange a tour of Parliament for you, please contact him via email. Be sure to include your full name and address in the constituency.
Commercial tours of Parliament are also run at weekends and when Parliament is in recess. The commercial tours can be personally guided as part of a group or with an audio headset. You can also book a commercial tour that includes an afternoon tea. Further details can be found here.
