This week I had a welcomed visit from 16 & 17 year old pupils from Gourock’s St Columba’s High School.
The students spent the weekend in London visiting museums, taking in shows and then finished it off with an educational visit to the Houses of Parliament. The Parliament Education Centre is a recent addition to the estate, it houses world-class education facilities that aim to inspire and connect young people with Parliament and democracy.
When I joined the class they were learning about the different voting systems in the UK. It was apparent that the students knew exactly what they were talking about.
I was happy to take questions on my life in Westminster in an attempt to lift the veil of what goes on down here. As ever these pupils did Inverclyde proud with their informed and interesting questions.
