A group of young people from the UR Choice Young People’s Project in Beaumont Leys came to Westminster this week. I’d invited them to come along when I met them at Home Farm over the summer, and they said they’d be interested in finding out what Parliament is like and what an MP does.
It’s really important my constituents know that Parliament is theirs, not mine, and that they can come visit and meet me as their local MP any time (although its always best to ring in advance!). I’m particularly keen to help young people understand more about our democracy, and how they can get involved in politics and make it work for them. But whatever your age, please do get in touch with my office if you’d like to visit.
