Contacting the government

The offices and departments of Parliament deal only with parliamentary work - not the work of government departments. If you have a question relating to government activities, please contact the relevant department.

When you should contact the government

If, for example, you have a question about government policies on the National Health Service, this should be directed to the government department that deals with that subject - in this case, the Department for Health.

Contacting a government minister

Parliament and government are two separate institutions. The government runs the country, drafting and implementing new laws; Parliament checks the government's work and debates and approves new laws.
