His appeal was not successful. What is an MPS? Residents of a constituency or constituents can meet up with the MP and writers will draft a petition letter on their behalf. These are then sent to Government bodies, corporations or registered groups. They are required to stay late into the night if necessary it is not uncommon that MPs, and their writers work into the wee hours, even as late as 3am.
