UK Parliament Week is a great opportunity to engage with local schools and I look forward to talking with Inverclyde pupils.
It’s important to discuss the role of a Member of Parliament and also to allow pupils and constituents to directly meet with their elected representatives. Ultimately, MP’s are elected to represent their constituents and raise their concerns and issues in Parliament.
- Parliament Week began in 2011 with a small number of events held across the country.
- This year’s Parliament Week (13–19 November) will see more events than ever, with over 380,000 people taking part from almost every parliamentary constituency. Nearly 5,000 organisations – including schools, uniformed groups and religious organisations – have registered a parliament-related event.
