The session was organised to educate the students on of how UK Parliament works, the roles and responsibilities of MPs and members of the House of Lords, as well as how they can get their voices heard.

Carlisle MP John Stevenson also attended the session and took part in the question-and-answer sessions with the students.

Topics covered included: 

  • How and why we vote
  • Bills, laws, and petitions
  • Local issues in our area

Education officer Liam Jackson said: "‘It was great to see the learners engage with Rachael and John in such a positive manner, discussing key topics that they feel are important in the local area.

"They all came away with a better understanding of how parliament works and the positive contributions they can have through debate and discussions."

Carlisle MP John Stevenson said: "It was great to meet the students and answer questions and discuss current issues with them.

"They were all enthusiastic and interested and were a credit to their class as they participated in UK Parliament week.”
