Pupils visit local MP in Westminster
PUPILS from Knights Templar School, Baldock, were given a tour of the House of Commons when they were guests of East and North Herts MP Oliver Heald last week.
The visit was their reward for their hard work and commitment on many school issues.
Mr Heald arranged for the pupils and several teachers to experience a full tour of the House of Commons and House of Lords and their visit finished with Mr Heald holding a question and answer session in a select committee room where pupils quizzed the MP on a variety of local issues, the role of an MP, voting reform and priorities of the new Government.
“I was pleased Knights Templar arranged this event as part of their citizenship programme,” said Mr Heald.
“They enjoyed the tour and had some great questions. They also found the contrast between the old and new buildings interesting.”
