MP’s ques­tion time

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

MP Shailesh Vara met pupils at Arthur Mel­lows Vil­lage Col­lege in Glin­ton where he spoke about his pre­vi­ous role in govern­ment with both the Min­istry of Jus­tice and the Depart­ment for Work and Pen­sions. The MP for North West Cam­bridgeshire then took part in a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion, which took in the EU ref­er­en­dum, stu­dent loans and the de­vel­op­ment of Peter­bor­ough. Mr Vara said: “The col­lege has worked very hard over the years to pro­vide a con­sis­tent qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion and its Of­sted rat­ing of ‘Out­stand­ing’ is tes­ta­ment to this. As al­ways there were some chal­leng­ing ques­tions from the pupils on a va­ri­ety of is­sues.” Head­teacher Mike San­de­man said: “It was a plea­sure to see a sit­ting MP reach out to young peo­ple and en­gage with them on the top­ics of their choice.”
