Local pupils get a taste for politics


Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire welcomed pupils from the High School of Glasgow to Parliament on Wednesday

Although the school is just outside the constituency, many of the pupils are from the East Dunbartonshire area. Pupils from the Advanced Higher Modern Studies class joined Jo for a Q&A session, took a tour of Parliament and had their photo taken outside No 10 Downing Street as part of a 3-day trip to London.

Commenting Jo said:

"It's really important that young people are encouraged to take an interest in politics.

"I'm always excited to talk to young constituents and the pupils made some really smart observations – I think there may be a future politician in there somewhere!

"Any constituents interested in booking a tour of Parliament should get in touch either via email jo.swinson.mp@parliament.uk or by phone at 0141 943 1568."
