Dissolution of Parliament

Much of the content on this website was established while I was a Member of Parliament. As Parliament has been dissolved there are no MPs until after the Election on 7 May 2015.


Welcome. My name is Paul Uppal. I hope that this website will keep you up to date with what I am doing for the people of Wolverhampton both in the constituency and in Westminster.

Kind regards,
