Since thats the case (at least in theory) I thought I should send my local MP an email. Full text below.
Dear Mr Khalid Mahmood MP,

I write to you tom congratulate you on your success in the recent general election and ask that in the new parliament you make an effort to convince the government to take Action on Global Poverty in 2005.

Can I ask that you start by signing Early Day Motion 14 - ACTION ON GLOBAL POVERTY IN 2005 and write to the Prime Minister asking that the UK government fight to ensure that governments, particularly in poor countries, can choose the best solutions to end poverty and protect the environment, End export dumping that damages the livelihoods of poor rural communities around the world, Make laws that stop big business profiting at the expense of poor & vulnerable people and the environment, Use its EU Presidency to bring forward reform of the Common Agriculture Policy from 2013, Use its EU Presidency and Chairmanship of the G8 to cancel all the unpayable debts of the world’s poorest countries by fair and transparent means and Use its EU Presidency and Chairmanship of the G8 to set a binding timetable for all G8 countries to spend 0.7% of national income on aid.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
Adam Nazir Ahmed Teladia
