Dear Sir

I write in my capacity as Member of Parliament for St. James North, to arrange a formal meeting with you at the soonest available time.

As a new Parliamentary representative, I wish to gain a better understanding as to how your department functions, requirements or application procedures to assist constituents and to foster a working relationship with relevant officers. A major topic that I am eager to discuss and understand is that regarding the Zone One Policy, as it largely affects many areas within my constituency.

I look forward to your favourable response regarding a meeting in the near future.
