Andrew Mitchell MP talks politics at Bishop Vesey

6th November 2013

Andrew Mitchell MP has visited Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School to discuss a range of local, national and international issues with students interested in Politics.

The School – which recently achieved excellent grades at both GCSE and A Levels – invited Mr Mitchell to give a short talk on his role as the local Member of Parliament which stimulated much debate between students and the MP who fielded questions on a range of topics such as High Speed 2, Tuition Fees, nuclear weapons and the situation in Syria.

Following the visit, Andrew Mitchell MP said, “I enjoyed my visit to Bishop Vesey, as I always do, and chose to speak briefly about the threat to Sutton’s Green Belt, youth unemployment and International Development which provided food for thought and initiated a variety of quick-fire questions.”

“It was a pleasure to talk to the students who demonstrated great enthusiasm and a strong knowledge of current affairs.”
