Andrew Mitchell MP welcomes Sutton School Pupils to Parliament

A group of pupils from St Nicholas Catholic Primary School were welcomed to the Houses of Parliament by Andrew Mitchell in a recent visit to Westminster Palace to gain a deeper understanding of the role of Parliament.

The party of 15 from St Nicholas’ met with Sutton’s MP at 1 Parliament Street, part of the Parliamentary estate on Whitehall, as part of a curriculum-based tour of the Palace of Westminster organised with the Parliamentary Education Service.

The group which comprised students from Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 sat down with Sutton’s MP to ask him questions about his work in Parliament and role representing Sutton Coldfield in the House of Commons. Other activities included taking part in a Parliamentary quiz and learning of the many ways they can lobby their MP on issues they care about.

Speaking after the event Andrew Mitchell commented “It has been a pleasure to welcome such an enthusiastic group of students from St Nicholas Primary School to Parliament. I hope they enjoyed their day out in London and the opportunity to learn further about the history of the Houses of Parliament”.
