Chloe Smith, Member of Parliament for Norwich North has this week welcomed school pupils from Thorpe St Andrew High to Westminster.
Chloe welcomed the pupils and their teacher to Westminster for an educational tour of the Houses of Parliament and where the young people had the opportunity to quiz Chloe about her work both in Norwich and in Westminster.
The pupils from the school were winners of a public speaking competition run internally in the school, and received a tour of the Houses of Parliament, hosted by Chloe as their prize.
Chloe regularly invites Norwich North schools and community groups to come to Westminster and to take part in free tours organised by the Houses of Parliament Tour Office. Schools can find out about Parliament’s educational services and arrange tours via this link: http://www.parliament.uk/…/visit-parliament-with-your-scho…/
Chloe comments: “It was a pleasure to welcome the competition winners from Thorpe St Andrew's High School to Westminster and answer their questions about politics, how Parliament works and about my role as an MP. It is important that young people understand politics and to encourage a younger generation to engage in politics- after all, one of these young people might be a future Prime Minister!”
