Once the meeting is set, spend some time
There is a difference between meeting with an
MP who is running for re-election and a
candidate for that MP's job!
Consider who the candidate is and what they stand for when developing
your meeting strategy. Are they running for re-election? Are they a new
candidate? Are they from the governing party, or from the opposition?
Before you meet with a sitting MP, try to have a broad idea of what
they’ve done in the past to support literacy – if you can’t
think of anything, then maybe they haven’t done enough!
