The postal address for all MPs is House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA.
Your MP’s email address will almost certainly be in this format: surname followed by initial (no punctuation or gaps)@parliament.uk. If they are one of the very few MPs whose email address does not conform to that format, your email will bounce back to you. Please let us know if that happens and we will find their email address for you.
We would suggest that you write something very brief, for example as follows:
Please sign EDM 29, which calls for an unprecedented comparison of currently required animal tests with a set of human biology-based tests, to see which is more predictive of safety for patients.
EDM 29 does not seek to ban any animal tests but merely to assess them scientifically.
A million Britons are hospitalised by prescription medicines every year, costing the NHS £2 billion (Sarah Boseley, the Guardian 3rd April 2008).
These figures must be improved. There is evidence that human biology-based technologies may be more predictive of safety for humans: hence the need for a scientific comparison.
Yours sincerely ______________________
Given the volume of emails MPs receive, we believe brevity is paramount! MPs are only obliged to respond to their own constituents, so it is crucial to include your full address and postcode.
We would be very grateful to hear of any replies.
