Burlington School Visit Westminster

Students from Burlington Junior School have paid a visit to their local MP Greg Knight at Westminster.

The students were given a tour of the Palace of Westminster and they also visited the Queen’s robing room, the Royal Gallery and Westminster Hall.

After the tour they met East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg who explained how laws are made and how Parliament works before being quizzed by the students about the work of an MP.

Sir Greg said: “I was delighted to meet the students and explain the workings of Parliament. I believe that it is important that children visit Westminster so that they learn about how are laws are made before they reach voting age.”

He added: “I was very impressed with the interesting and varied questions from the students and pleased to see their interest in our democracy”.
