How long should we have to wait for a meeting with our MP?

Vernon Neighbourly Lead from Whanganui

On 2 October I made an appointment to meet with my MP to discuss pending legislation which concerned me. I was asked formy reason and then 28 October was the earliest time available
.
On 22 October the MP's's office telephoned me and cancelled the appointment. No explanation for the cancellation was offered, they seemed surprised when I asked for another appointment and after some humming I now have 18 November.

So 2 October to 18 November......6 weeks and 5 days

My MP is a first term MP with no ministerial duties and I wonder if the delays are deliberate so as to delay a meeting until it becomes pointless as the legislation will have been debated and passed.

Wotcha Fink?
