The hotlines list for the Senedd Cymru is here.  It is password protected and authorised staff should call the Customer Relations Team on 0300 200 6481 for access.

These hotline numbers are for the use of MPs, MSPs, Members of the Senedd and their staff ONLY. DO NOT disclose these numbers to members of the public or to staff in other agencies or the facility may be withdrawn.

Whilst MPs have certain Parliamentary privileges in relation to the authority to act for their constituents, this is not always extended to Members of the Scottish Parliament, or Members of the Senedd, so they must obtain written consent from their constituents. In any case, it is good practice for all representatives, including Members of Parliament, to obtain written consent whenever possible, in order to prevent any potential delays.

The list is updated when there are changes and represents the latest information we have. If you spot any mistakes or know of any other useful hotline numbers please let us know, using the website’s Feedback Form.

We have been asked by one or two agencies to encourage MPs, MSs and their staff to be sure to use these hotline numbers and NOT the numbers available for the general public. Here’s what they say: “Some Members and their staff continue to use the public enquiry line which means we are not always able to give the prompt reply that both they and we would like to happen.”

IMPORTANT: Are you using the correct hotlines list?

Please don’t print out the whole list and keep it on your desk, as you risk using out-of-date information – as well as using up an enormous amount of paper!  The list is updated frequently, sometimes several times a month, so please make sure you are using the most recent version   If you bookmark it, you’ll always be using the correct one.

It is better to view the list online rather than download it, then you can be sure you are always using the correct version.

Our list of hotline numbers is located on the Parliamentary Intranet (not on W4MP website) where it can be seen only by people with a parliamentary network account.  It is now listed as Hotlines for MPs under ‘H’ in the A-Z index on the intranet (click here). Click here for a direct link to the list.

It is also linked from the Constituency casework webpage on the parliamentary intranet and if you haven’t come across that very useful page do spend some time browsing through the excellent guides listed there. Here’s the link.

To clarify: you need to be working on the Parliamentary Network now to make those intranet connections.

If you do not have access to the UK Parliamentary Intranet, please use our Feedback Form to request a copy of the hotlines list, ensuring that you tell us who you work for. The list is available to Scottish Parliament and Members of the Senedd via their own Intranet.

Here’s something which is available to everyone: CEO email addresses: http://www.ceoemail.com/
