A group of local students from one of Dudley’s top colleges has visited Parliament to watch Prime Minister’s Questions.
Dudley MP Ian Austin will meet the group from King Edward VI College in Stourbridge, and has arranged tickets for local students to see the Prime Minister take questions from MPs.
Austin regularly welcomes school groups to Westminster and any local groups interested in visiting should contact his office on 020 7219 8012.
Ian Austin said:
“I’m really pleased to be welcoming Dudley students to Westminster so they can see Parliament at first hand and tell me and other MPs their views.
“I want young people in Dudley to know that what they think matters and that I will listen and speak up for them.
“Education and skills has to be our number one priority in Dudley, and events like this help set high standards.
“I want to make this a regular event so local students can be inspired and set high ambitions for themselves.”
Matt Cole, the politics teacher organising the trip, said:
“As always Ian gave our students his time and insight generously and frankly, and passed on his passion for politics and for Dudley.
“Ian's support made this the best visit to Parliament we have had in many years.”
