MP takes questions from students
John Baron MP met with a group of Year 9 and Year 10 students from Mayflower High School as part of their visit to Parliament. The group spent the day with Parliament’s Education service learning about how Parliament works and going on a tour of the Palace of Westminster. The trip culminated with a question and answers session with John.
“It was a very interesting session with lots of good questions, including as to how young people can get more involved in politics and my opposition to our interventions in Iraq, Helmand, Libya and Syria. My thanks to the Parliamentary Education Service and the teachers for arranging the trip.”
Mr Lee Brumby, Headteacher, Mayflower school said:
“The students had a fantastic time at parliament yesterday and enjoyed learning about its inner workings. Particularly interesting was the Question and Answer session with John Baron, MP, where students were keen to know why he moved into politics and his opinions on the conflicts in Iraq and Syria. Our students were also interested to hear about John’s views on the importance of politics and democracy. We hope they will be inspired to go out and make a difference in their own communities as a result.
My thanks go to John Baron, MP, and his office for taking the time to see us and to the Parliament Education Service for organising such an enjoyable and informative day.”
