Shabana Mahmood MP Labour Member of Parliament for Birmingham Ladywood
By the time this letter arrives you will probably be aware that the Prime Minister has called for the dissolution of Parliament and named the date for a General Election. Parliament will not be sitting during the election campaign.
As my constituent, I thought you might be interested to know the effects of the dissolution of Parliament.
From the moment Parliament is dissolved, I will no longer be your MP. I will become a Parliamentary Candidate for Birmingham Ladywood. Being your voice in Westminster is the privilege of my life and I look forward to standing on my strong local record throughout the campaign ahead.
You can find out who your local councillor is here: www.birmingham.gov.uk/councillors/name.
You can access details about departments in Birmingham City Council here: www.birmingham.gov.uk.
If I am successful at the election, then I will be immediately re-elected as your local MP, to continue representing the Birmingham Ladywood constituency in Parliament and across our communities. I will then continue where I left off and get on with any outstanding constituency casework. Please do not be concerned if you have an open case with my office, I will ensure that any responses I receive relating to your case(s) are sent out to you immediately during the election period.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you to register to vote if you are not registered already. You can register by visiting www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
I hope this helps to explain the situation during the election campaign.
Thanks and best wishes,
Parliamentary Candidate for Birmingham Ladywood
