Please note: I am not currently an MP, as Parliament has dissolved until after a General Election. The text below relates to the 2017 - 2019 Parliament and, if re-elected, I will update the surgery list in mid December.
Lee holds regular surgeries all around the constituency to allow residents to raise any issues or concerns with him. Since his election he has held dozens of surgeries all around the constituency and met with hundreds of residents who wanted to speak to him.
Resident surgeries can cover any topic, local or national, but are often the place to discuss issues such as:
- problems involving Government departments - such as the DWP, Home Office or HMRC on issues such as benefits, tax or immigration
- difficulties associated with the District or County Councils - where Lee can take up queries regarding roads, bins or our local area. Lee does not have power to make or reverse decisions but is happy to take matters up on behalf of residents to see if progress can be made
- housing issues - whether involving Rykneld, social housing provider in the constituency or other landlords
We operate an appointments based system to ensure everyone has the opportunity to discuss their particular concerns and, due to high demand, initial appointments are generally 15 minutes. Further appointments can then be arranged as necessary.
Due to the General Election, I am not able to offer surgeries until after mid December. My Eckington office remains open, however, for urgent cases and the casework team would be happy to assist. Please call on 439222 to discuss.
