Parish councils should be easier to contact, says MP

PARISH councillors should be easier to contact, says Penrith's MP.
It allows people to directly contact their local councillors, MPs, MEPs and Lords.
But Mr Stewart is hoping to get parish councils added to the website.
Mr Stewart MP said: “Parish Councils are the most grass roots level of our political system in the UK.
"I think it is incredibly important that their contact details are made readily available to communities. "The writetothem.com is a brilliant project which has allowed millions of people to get directly in touch with their representatives in a very easy and accessible way.
"I think it is vital that parish councils are added to the site to enable and encourage people to become more involved in local politics.”
