A general election will take place in just over a month's time on July 4 and the people of Lincolnshire will be given the chance to vote for their next MPs. One of the main roles of an MP is to raise the concerns of their constituents in the House of Commons to make their voices heard.

This is a crucial aspect of an MP's role as it allows them a platform to advocate for local issues while also contributing to national debates or considering and proposing new laws. Some MPs are particularly active when it comes to speaking in Parliament, while others opt for a quieter approach.

This can be due to a variety of reasons including differing political strategies or having a greater focus on constituency work. Some may also be more active due to being a cabinet minister for the government.
