Prior to Covid-19, Luke held monthly #MeetLuke events, in addition to his weekly Facebook Live Q&A #AskLuke and regular surgeries (now by Zoom but previously at his city-centre office).
At these, constituents would have the opportunity to meet Luke and to put your questions to him in person – about Brexit, climate change, Plymouth, or just to watch the debate.
These are on hold for the time being due to Covid-19, however you can still get in touch if you would like to raise an issue with Luke, or would like his assistance. You can do this by calling 01752 717255 and leaving a voicemail message, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
While we wait to get #MeetLuke events back up and running, Luke has been holding regular topical events with certain groups; for example with those excluded from government assistance during the pandemic, and with certain businesses and self-employed individuals like tattooists and beauticians.
Luke also continues to hold monthly roundtable sessions with stakeholders around the city on important topics, such as homelessness and the environment – but via Zoom
“Today when there is so much distrust and uncertainty in politics, it is up to politicians to be in touch with the communities they serve.
As an MP nothing is more important than engaging with the people I represent. Because I think politics is broken, I want to do things differently.
That’s why in addition to a #AskLuke weekly Facebook Live I do a monthly #MeetLuke Q&A session around Plymouth. Just like my Facebook chats you can ask me anything. I hope you can come along soon.”
