Members of the European Parliament (MEPs)

Each MEP has a special area of responsibility. The European Parliament website lists the committees that the MEPs sit on.

If you want to raise an issue with an MEP, you can choose which you think would best suit your needs – either because of the issue, your own political persuasion or where you live.
