Hotline telephone numbers for Members and their Staff.
These hotline numbers are for the use of MPs, MEPs, MSPs, Welsh Assembly Members and their staff ONLY. DO NOT disclose these numbers to members of the public or to staff in other agencies or the facility may be withdrawn.
Do you have the hotlines list bookmarked? It has come to our attention that some people are using a bookmark which links to a very old (June 2010) version of the hotlines list. That list is now very out-of-date. The list is updated frequently, usually about once a week, so please make sure you are using the most recent version and update your bookmark if necessary. It is better to view the list online rather than download it, then you can be sure you are always using the correct version.
Our list of hotline numbers is located on the Parliamentary Intranet (not on W4MP website) where it can be seen only by people with a parliamentary email address. It is now listed as Hotlines for MPs under 'H' in the A-Z index on the intranet (click here). Click here for a direct link to the list.
It is also linked from the Constituency casework webpage on the parliamentary intranet and if you haven't come across that very useful page do spend some time browsing through the excellent guides listed there. Here's the link.
To clarify: you need to be working on the Parliamentary Network now to make those intranet connections.
Don't forget to check out our own W4MP casework guides; they're here.
If you are an MEP, or his/her staff, and you do not have access to the UK Parliamentary Intranet, please use our Feedback Form to request a copy of the hotlines list, ensuring that you tell us who you work for. The list is available to Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly Members via their own Intranet. If anyone has a contact for the European Parliament Intranet (do they have one?) please let us know, again using our Feedback Form.
Here's something which is available to everyone: CEO email addresses. See www.w4mp.org/html/eni/2010q3/20100709_ceo_email.asp.

The list is updated when there are changes and represents the latest information we have. If you spot any mistakes or know of any other useful hotline numbers please let us know, using the website's Feedback Form.
We have been asked by one or two agencies to encourage MPs, MEPs, AMs and their staff to be sure to use these hotline numbers and NOT the numbers available for the general public. Here's what they say: "Some Members and their staff continue to use the public enquiry line which means we are not always able to give the prompt reply that both they and we would like to happen."
