MP welcomes Ireland Wood pupils to Parliament

November 25, 2014 4:01 PM

Greg Mulholland, MP for Leeds North West, last week welcomed Year 5 pupils from Ireland Wood Primary School to Parliament to talk about how parliament works, democracy and life as an MP.

The 10 and 11 year olds came to London to visit the Houses of Parliament and were able to ask Greg questions about the role of parliament and his role as MP for Leeds North West.

Comment, Greg, said:

"I was delighted to welcome pupils from Ireland Wood to Parliament - they asked lots of interesting questions which gave them a real insight into how parliament works and the role of an MP.

"I think it is very important that young people know how the decisions taken in Westminster affect their lives, and in turn I was delighted to hear their views on politics and was very impressed with their knowledge of the issues involved."

"If any other school in Leeds North West would like to visit parliament please get in contact with my office."

Tom Connelly, teacher at Ireland Wood, said:

"Thanks to Greg for meeting us at the Houses of Parliament. The children really enjoyed going upstairs in the House of Parliament and it really did enrich their visit."
