David Rutley MP for Macclesfield took time out of his busy Parliamentary diary to lead question and answer sessions with students from the Fallibroome Academy.
The group of 32 Year 8 students had travelled to Westminster to find out more about how Parliament works. The trip was organised by Parliament’s Education Service and allowed the pupils to take a tour of the Houses of Parliament and learn about the progression of Parliamentary Bills.
David added a real life insight into the work of an MP. He spent time explaining the day to day work of an MP, sharing his experiences of representing Macclesfield. Students were keen to find out more about the traditions of the House, Government policy and what it is like to work in Parliament.
Following the visit, David said: “It was a pleasure to welcome students from the Fallibroome Academy to the Houses of Parliament. I was impressed by the level of understanding they have gained and the questions they asked. I hope other schools in Macclesfield will take advantage of the Education Service’s visits to Parliament scheme.”
Following their visit to the Houses of Parliament, the group enjoyed a trip on the London Eye.
