North Lanarkshire has lots of politicians - four Labour MPs, five Labour constituency MSPs and seven regional list MSPs - drawn from a variety of political parties.
The purpose of the regional list is to bring political balance to an area - where one party dominates in the 'first-past the post' elections.
But regional list MSPs have exactly the same standing - as their constituency colleagues - the only difference is that they cover a wider area - not just North Lanarkshire Council, or part of the council area.
So, here are the contact details for regional list MSP's covering the North Lanarkshrie Council area.
If your local MP or constituency MSP is not supportive over equal pay - or any other issue for that matter - you may wish to take things up with one of the regional list MSPs.
Let us know how you get on.
