Meeting Staple Hill Primary School Council

One of Jack's favourite parts of his role as Member of Parliament for Filton and Bradley Stoke is to visit local schools. On Friday, he visited Staple Hill Primary School to meet the School Council and answer questions from them about his work as an MP.

Jack was present at the opening ceremony for the new school in November, and agreed to visit again to meet pupils in a more informal setting. The School Council had worked hard to think up some questions for him, which he answered in a session that lasted nearly an hour. The subjects covered ranged from those about his role as an MP to his life outside politics and what jobs he had before he entered Parliament. He was also asked if he had any opinions on how to get the country out of debt, and if he had met any famous people, and whether he considered himself a celebrity!

'I really enjoyed my visit to Staple Hill Primary School. Visiting schools is probably the most enjoyable part of my job, and I thought the questions the School Council had come up with were very interesting and often tricky to answer. I hope they enjoyed hearing about my work, and lets hope it has inspired some of them to go into politics themselves.'
