Conor McGinn MP has published a Parliamentary Report detailing his work in Parliament and St Helens since he was elected in May.
In it, the St Helens North MP gives a flavour of his activities in the local community, including some ofхЪmore than 30 events he has attended in every part of the constituency fromхЪvisits to schools, charity collections, festivals, family fun days, promotions of local businesses and many other civic occasions.
Conor’s published figures also show that his office has dealt with over 1000 queries from constituents since it opened just a week after he became an MP, with every piece of correspondence received acknowledged and replied to, the majority meeting his own target.
He and his full-time constituency caseworker, a role he promised to have in his office prior to the election, has alsoхЪdirectly worked with almost 70 constituents who have had particular problems or issues that required the MPs assistance or intervention. He has already held 6 constituency surgeries in Rainford, Parr, Newton-le-Willows, St Helens, Billinge and Haydock, meeting his pledge to hold regular advice clinics throughout the local area. хЪ
On his role in Westminster, Conor has been appointed to the high-profile Defence Select Committee, where his role is to scrutinise the Government’s policies on defence, national security, the Armed Forces and veterans. He was also elected by MPs from all parties to serve as the Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Irish in Britain, a role which saw him meet the President of Ireland in Britain last month.хЪ
Conor says one of the most important things about his work in Parliament is the ability to raise local issues at a national level. He said:
“In the short time I have been an MP, IхЪhave exposed the lack of government funding for pupils in St Helens compared to the national average, revealed the fact that no funding for homeless Armed Forces veterans has been made available to the North West, obtained figures that show energy bills on Merseyside have risen by 1/3 since 2010 and questioned Ministers about local transport costs, rising child poverty levels in the region and cuts to the local government budget in our borough. I will continue to stand-up and speak up for St Helens North.”
“I have published this report so that my constituents in St Helens North can see what I’ve been doing locally in the community, how I’ve been helping people who ask my office for assistance and what I’ve been raising in Parliament at Westminster. I hope people find it useful and am happy to receive any feedback.”
