WESTON’S MP visited an academy to talk to students about life in Westminster.
MP John Penrose gave a detailed account about his role in politics to students from across Hans Price Academy in Marchfields Way, before fielding a question and answer session.
Esther Lawton, head of work related learning at the school, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for students to learn first hand the work and role our local MP plays in shaping the decision making process on issues in Weston.
“It is important for us, wherever possible, to give our students access to national figures to openly discuss issues that will involve their futures and this was also a chance to promote our student voice to a cabinet minister.”
