Oakwood School comes to Parliament

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Year 10 students from Oakwood School this morning, as part of their tour of the Houses of Parliament. Topics covered in our discussion ranged from the role of an MP through to my own priorities for East Surrey and thoughts on a sixth form for Horley, and I would like to thank all students who contributed with questions. Parliament runs a year round programme of visits for schools, which offers a fantastic way for young people to see firsthand how our democracy works. Parliamentary business permitting I am always happy to meet with schools in East Surrey as part of their visit, and I would encourage any local schools who do not already have a visit scheduled to visit the Education service website ( http://www.parliament.uk/education/ ) for more details.
