The spokespersons service receives more emails than can be responded to.

Please provide a deadline and use a clear 'subject line' to make sure you get a timely response.
We prioritise journalist inquiries, and do not deal with event invitations or policy suggestions.

All our press release and speeches can be found at Rapid website.
