Core questions asked at these interviews
1. Are you aware of the systems to help you do your job and the mechanisms you need to raise an issue that concerns you?
2. What do you consider to be the strengths and weaknesses of the present system? Are the systems/mechanisms sufficient? If not, what would you suggest as an alternative, bearing in mind the need for transparency and accountability?
3. What support do you need to help you function as a Member of Parliament?
4. What is the balance between your constituency responsibilities (including casework) and work related to the House (calling the Government to account/Committee work/raising questions in the House)?
5. Have you noticed any change in the type of casework presented to you? For example, matters that you cannot deal with directly (and would refer to other bodies) compared with issues that you can usefully take forward on behalf of your constituent.
6. (For those Members who have been here for more than one Parliament) Do you have any evidence to support a change in the trend? (Perhaps an analysis of your postbag or of the cases that come to your surgeries.)
