Meet Scott

It is important to me to be as accessible to all residents in Blackpool South as I possibly can be. I therefore hold regular surgeries by appointment, open surgeries (no appointment needed), pop-up surgeries, and coffee mornings around Blackpool.

Casework

I am able to undertake cases for my constituents on a range of issues, with the help of my team.

Quite often assistance can be given without requiring a meeting, or work may be done in advance of one.

As a Member of Parliament I am best able to assist with matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible such as:

  • Tax problems involving the HM Revenue and Customs Department.
  • Problems dealt with by the Department for Work and Pensions such as benefits, pensions and National Insurance.
  • Problems dealt with by the Home Office, such as immigration.
  • Problems dealt with by the Department of Health, such as hospitals and the National Health Service (NHS).
  • Problems dealt with by the Department for Education, such as school closures and grants.

However, I aim to advise on all matters and signpost you to where you can best get help with any other issues, for example, with local Council matters.

Please note that I am not able to settle private disputes with neighbours or employers, nor help in family arguments or some individual consumer matters. I cannot interfere with decisions made in court or the legal process.

These are guidelines only and if you are unsure whether I can assist you, please don’t hesitate to contact the office.

Open & Pop Up Surgeries

No appointment necessary, just drop in and have a chat.  For dates, please visit my events page.

Coffee mornings

Come and have a tea/coffee (and a couple of biscuits!) with me for a Q&A session – open to all constituents. Please contact the office to confirm how many would like to attend. This will help us cater for everyone:

Individual Visits

Visits to Blackpool schools, businesses, events, organisations etc., or a group of 6+ people for a ‘Meet Your MP’ question and answer style session on request, subject to availability.
