Working with Westminster

The Houses of Parliament in Westminster

We support enquiries from MPs and their parliamentary researchers on a wide range of relevant issues.

Often this is a constituency level interest in severe weather impacts and the Met Office's role in issuing alerts and providing guidance to the emergency services. But we also cover issues as diverse as the UK's role in satellite observations and weather related health issues.
