Telford MP Lucy Allan has today visited St Georges Church of England Primary School to talk with year 6 pupils about Parliament and being Telford’s MP.
After first attending the school’s weekly assembly and receiving a tour from Head Teacher Mr Tyas, Lucy proceeded to a grilling from Year 6 pupils. The pupils aged 10 and 11 asked a variety of questions covering topics such as the EU referendum, boundary changes and Sunday trading hours.
Speaking afterwards, Lucy said: “It’s great to visit Telford schools, especially outstanding ones like St Georges C of E. To see school children taking such an interest in politics and Parliament and appreciating the importance of our democratic system is fantastic and they are a credit to their school.
“A key part of being Telford’s MP is being accessible to all ages and I hope the children who took part in asking me questions got as much from the session as I did.
“St Georges Primary is such a lovely school and the pupils and parents are fortunate to have such dedicated teachers giving their all and I thank them for their invitation to visit.”
