Members of Parliament (MPs) represent people from their local area at the Houses of Parliament in Westminster. They are elected every five years, and split their time between their area (also known as their constituency) and Parliament.
In their constituency, MPs meet with residents and local businesses to see how they can work together to solve local problems. Residents can contact their MP about issues they might be facing, for example employment, housing or benefits.
In Parliament, MPs sit on committees on different subjects, such as education, economics or defence, and vote on legislation in the House of Commons.
There are three Members of Parliament for Coventry.
