Students to have a day with MP
ASPIRING politicians are invited to a day in Parliament with the MP.
Sixth formers have the opportunity to attend the Parliamentary Induction Day with Macclesfield MP David Rutley to get a glimpse of how Westminster works.
Ten students will watch debates in the public galleries of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, sit in on a Select Committee and be given a guided tour of the historic Palace of Westminster. Mr Rutley will join students for a question and answer session.
Mr Rutley said: “Engag- ing the next generation in our political processes and encouraging them to become active citizens is vital and I’m pleased to be able to organise this event once again. I encourage any young person interested to get in touch soon.”
Any students interested in attending should email david.rutley.mp@ parliament.uk.
They should include their age, school or college, address and phone number.
The Parliamentary Induction Day is on Tuesday, October 24, from 9am to 4.30pm.
