Disclaimer: I would advise reading A Letter To My MP first
There are a lot of things more exciting than receiving a fancy envelope with the House of Commons boldly written upon it, but there are also a lot of things that could be worse. I must admit that I felt slightly important and official, and my mother wore that impressed face that they often do when their child has done something other than successfully put the washing in the basket, but I was just glad to have received a reply. Although, when looking at the examples of how to write a letter to your MP, the examples were incredibly mundane as life tends to be so I hoped I would have a good chance of hearing a reply.
Despite the shortness of the letter, I do have hope that perhaps my request will be taken into genuine consideration but with that, only time will tell. So here it is:
Dear Miss Simms,
Thank you for your letter of 7th December about ‘The Good Immigrant’ by Nikesh Shukla.
I was interested to read your thoughts on why this book should be on the school syllabus and I think you have a made a strong case, particularly as the need for community cohesion is more important now than ever before.
Therefore, I have taken the opportunity to pass your letter on to the Secretary of State for Education, the Rt Hon. Justine Greening MP, for her comments on the matter. I shall, of course write to you again when I have received her response.
Thank you again for taking the time to write to me.
