Members of Parliament are your representatives in Parliament. You can contact them at their offices in the parliamentary complex or at their out-of-Parliament or electorate offices. This page tells you how to find contact details for members and Ministers, and how to address people in Parliament when you correspond with them.
To contact a member of Parliament
Go to the list of current members of Parliament.
Choose how you want the list to display (for example, display the list by political party, electorate, role, or select committee membership). The display options will help you to decide which member of Parliament you should contact.
Click on the member’s name to go to a page that includes the member’s contact details.
The MPs contact list contains contact details at Parliament and also at their out-of-Parliament offices.
Use the maps on the Elections New Zealand website if you need to find out which electorate you live in.

Another way to find out which members of Parliament have an office near where you live is to look in your local telephone directory under ‘members of Parliament’.
