Morecambe and Lunesdale MP David Morris was asked by a resident in Queensland, Australia to resolve a land sale dispute.
The mix up occurred because there is an Australian MP called David Morris MP who represents the constituency of Mornington and is the Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government.
MP David Morris said: “These days it is not unusual for constituency casework to come in from Facebook and other forms of social media, but when this message came through it looked odd.
“I’m always telling my staff that we have a can do attitude, even I am drawing the line at getting involved in an Australian issue!”
The constituent who David Morris MP (Morecambe & Lunesdale) is not naming said: “Indeed, my apologies... Quite a coincidence two fellows of the same name pursuing the same career path, and both subsequently elected to office.
“Many thanks for your prompt reply, and good day to you.”
