From Harrow, For Harrow
Gareth Thomas MP, House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA
As a Member of Parliament, Gareth is often best placed to assist constituents with matters relating to functions of central government departments, such as healthcare, taxation and tax credits, citizenship, immigration and passports, benefits and pensions, student finance and policing.
If you are getting in touch about an issue related to the services provided by Harrow Council, including matters such as council housing, planning, street cleaning and parking, you may find that your elected local ward councillor will be best placed to assist you in the first instance. You can find out who your local councillors are here.
Please be aware that it is not within Gareth’s remit to intervene in private disputes, such as those between neighbours, between an employer or employee and individual consumer complaints, or to intervene in outstanding legal matters, and court decisions. Harrow Citizen’s Advice Bureau is a useful starting point if you are seeking advice and assistance for these kinds of matters.
When getting in touch it would be most helpful if you could please make sure you include your full name, home address, contact number as well as any relevant reference numbers (e.g. National Insurance number or Home Office reference). Please also be aware that strict parliamentary protocol dictates that Members of Parliament may only deal with enquiries and cases on behalf of their own constituents.

Gareth continues to operate a constituency office near West Harrow tube station. Please note, however, that the constituency office does not have the facility to see members of the public without an appointment. Additionally, following advice, for security reasons visitors without a confirmed appointment will strictly not be seen.
Please ensure all post is directed to Gareth at the House of Commons (address above) and not posted or hand delivered to the constituency office or advice surgery venue. This is because all post must be diverted to parliament to be security screened, and therefore there will be a greater delay in your letter being read.
