Boclair pupils quiz Jo in Parliament


Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire welcomed pupils from Boclair Academy to the House of Commons on Friday. 

Pupils joined Jo for a Q&A session where questions ranged from the life of an MP to being a woman in politics.  They then took a tour of Parliament and had their photo taken outside No 10 Downing Street as part of their trip to London.

Commenting Jo said:

“It’s important that people have the opportunity to quiz and question their MP, and I was happy to be able to provide Boclair Academy students with the chance to do this in Parliament.

“I hope it increases their understanding of what an MP does in both Parliament and their constituency and that they may one day be tempted to be involved in politics themselves.

“Any constituents interested in booking a tour of Parliament should get in touch either via email jo.swinson.mp@parliament.uk or by phone at 0141 943 1568.”
