Bray People - - NEWS -

CHIL­DREN from 4th, 5th and 6th class at Pow­er­scourt Na­tional School paid a visit to Le­in­ster House last week.

Min­is­ter Si­mon Har­ris or­gan­ised the tour for the stu­dents who were joined by par­ents and teach­ers from the school.

‘It is hugely im­por­tant that chil­dren in our schools un­der­stand how the Ir­ish par­lia­men­tary sys­tem func­tions and to see their pub­lic rep­re­sen­ta­tives at work,’ said Min­is­ter Har­ris after the visit.

He was speak­ing in the Seanad on the Fi­nance Bill and said he was pleased that Pow­er­scourt got to watch the pro­ceed­ings.

‘ This is a very sig­nif­i­cant Bill for our coun­try,’ said Si­mon.
