Currently Alan is a Minister in the Government Whips’ Office. Government Whips are Ministers responsible for delivering the Government’s policy agenda through Parliament, led by the Chief Whip.
As a Whip, Mr Mak is also responsible for helping the Prime Minister and Chief Whip to maintain Party discipline in Parliament, supervising Parliamentary business in the House of Commons Chamber, and acting as a pastoral link between central Government and backbench MPs.
By convention, Whips in the House of Commons do not speak in debates nor do they table questions to other Ministers. However, Whips do continue to lobby and make representations to their Ministerial colleagues in other Departments on behalf of constituents, and Mr Mak will continue doing this in his capacity as MP for the Havant Constituency.
