Find A Member of Parliament

Parents can use this map to find contact details for the Member of Parliament responsible for the electorate in which the school is located. This is useful when parents would like to ask MPs to take up issues for them with government departments or in the federal or state parliaments.

The map shows all Independent schools in Victoria as red dots and the surrounding electorate. State boundaries are shown by blue lines and federal electorate boundaries as black lines. To choose either a state or federal electorates go to Options, click on the layers legend next to the magnifying glass and tick your choice on the box that appears on the map (see detail instructions below).
