    Instead of thrashing out the pros and cons of agencies on here, please note that some MPs, even Conservatives, are concerned about the current state of supply. An Early Day Motion has been tabled in Parliament.
    You can contact your MP about this, whichever side of the fence you sit.

    Hi nearmiss, I read the article - good to see supply agencies are under discussion. One of the agencies mentioned is one that's been paying me pro rata, or paying me different daily rates and not informing me, really wish they could be made more accountable for the way they operate.
    Thanks for highlighting the article.

    I recently contacted my MP last week about another matter affecting my son, MP was fab, and actually did sort it for me immediately by putting [pressure on the Chief Exec of the LA, so
    don't think it would be reasonable to ask him another favour so soon...

    Well, the EDM will be on the table for ages, so give it a few weeks. I would have thought the old flattery, "thank for your prompt and invaluable intervention etc." might actually give you some leverage. They love a bit of shmoose.

    Your MP must be better then mine. I have contacted him about the supply issue, as well as to my union and the various regulatory bodies and none have ever replied.
