About your Member of Parliament

Your MP (George Galloway) represents you, and all of the people who live in Rochdale, at the UK Parliament in Westminster.

MPs split their time between Parliament and their constituency. In Parliament, they debate and vote on new laws, review existing laws, and question the Government. In the constituency, their focus is on supporting local people and championing local issues. They have a small staff team who help with casework, maintain their diaries, and monitor their inbox.

I want to make a point about the gall of the Premier League lobbying us yesterday, saying that all these matters should be left to the...
  • Football Governance Bill 23 Apr 2024

    I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman, who has made a very important point.
