Dudley MP Ian Austin will be visiting Bramford Primary School on Friday to talk to Year 4 pupils about democracy and his role as an MP.
Pupils are learning about democracy in the UK and around the world, with Parliament being their current focus. Austin will be taking questions from the children and speaking about what it means to be an MP in Dudley and in Parliament.
Austin went to school in Dudley and regularly organises trips to Parliament and visits to local schools so that pupils can ask him about his role as their local MP.
Ian Austin said:
“Education needs to be our number one priority in Dudley, so I’m really pleased to be visiting Bramford Primary and talking to pupils about my role as their local MP.
“It is great to see that pupils are taking an interest in politics, British values and the world around them, even at a young age.
“It is a really interesting time in British Politics with Parliament dominating the news coverage, so it’s good to teach young people about what is happening and how what I do in London could affect them here in Dudley.”
