Hello



Thanks for getting in touch. This is an automatic reply. I will aim to get back in touch with you within the next few days.



If you are a constituent can you please provide your address. A strict Parliamentary rule means I can only deal with constituency issues on behalf of my own constituents, and not constituents of neighbouring MPs.



All information will be handled in accordance with our privacy policy, available here.



I aim to prioritise constituents with urgent issues, so replies to chain emails or national campaigns may take slightly longer - thank you for your patience. Please note that I do not sign Early Day Motions (EDMs) on any subject.



Best wishes,



***** O"Brien OBE MP

Member of Parliament for Harborough, Oadby and Wigston
