Visit to St Mary’s primary, Mortimer

I visited St Mary’s Mortimer at their request on Monday morning before going to Parliament for the votes on Criminal Justice and abortion. The School asked me to talk to the older children about Parliament and government, as they are studying rules and governments at the moment.

The children asked a wide range of questions about how political parties work, how many MPs there are, what is good and bad about being an MP, whether I had met the Prime Minister, what I could do to change things and why people become MPs.

    One assumes you did not discuss with the primary school pupils why the Department for Education thinks they are worth 20 percent per pupil less funding than secondary pupils.
