John Redwood visited Bearwood Primary on Monday 18th November. He was shown round all the classrooms, library and play areas by two memebrs of the Schools Council, who were most informative about the school.
He then spoke briefly about Parliament, the job of an MP, Big Ben and the Palace buildings, before anwering a good torrent of questions. There was an early pre Christmas flavour to the proceedings, with questions on Christmas presents and how people spend Christmas morning, as well as questions about the life of an MP. John Redwood was able to confirm he did know David Cameron and met him regularly, and explained how an MP was chosen to do the job by the voters.
John said “I am gratteful to the pupils and staff for welcoming me to their school and telling me so much about it. I encourage the pupils to come and visit Westminster when they come to London, as Parliament is a great building which can tell you a lot about our history and our democracy”.
