Valerie Welcomes Joseph Leckie Academy to Parliament

On 31 March I had the pleasure of welcoming students from Joseph Leckie Academy to Parliament, along with Principal James Ludlow and Assistant Principal Joe Greaves.

The students were given on a tour of Parliament to learn about its history and procedures. They were taken through Westminster Hall, through Central Lobby, and arrived at the Lords just in time to see a vote. 

The students were then able to watch the debate ahead of the Easter adjournment in the Commons, and when this concluded, to go down into the Chamber.
