Students from Creeting St Mary Primary School had the opportunity to speak with Central Suffolk and North Ipswich MP Dr Dan Poulter when they made the trip to Westminster for a visit to the Houses of Parliament.

The year six students learnt about the history of Parliament on their tour and then had a question and answer session with Dr Poulter, who has visited the students at their school on a number of occasions. The students asked him a wide range of questions on local and national topics, including what his job as an MP, as a member of the Energy and Climate Change Committee, and as an NHS hospital doctor entails.

After meeting with the students, Dr Poulter said: “Visiting Parliament is always a memorable experience and it offers young people the opportunity to learn about Britain’s history, democracy and our law making process.

“It is always a top priority for me to take the time out of my busy schedule to speak with younger constituents about my role as their MP in order to encourage their interests in how Government and democracy works and for them to better understand what I do for them as their MP.

“I welcomed the opportunity to answer a variety of well-informed questions from the pupils and I look forward to visiting the school again in the near future.”
