Jo Swinson with Robin and Urszula Watkinson.
A Bearsden couple received a taste of Parliament last week with local MP Jo Swinson
Robin and Urszula Watkinson contacted Jo’s office a few months ago to organise a visit to Parliament – a service that Jo is encouraging local residents to take advantage of.
Mr and Mrs Watkinson took in the rich history of Westminster on a Parliamentary tour, then met Jo for a chat about issues of the day before watching Prime Minister’s Questions from the public gallery.
Commenting, Jo said:
“It was a real pleasure to meet Mr and Mrs Watkinson: speaking to constituents is one of the most important parts of my job and it’s great to hear from local people when they visit London.
“If organised through the MP, Parliamentary tours are free, so I would encourage any interested East Dunbartonshire residents to get in touch if they’d like to plan a Westminster visit: email me at[email protected] or call my office on 0141 7622209.”
Commenting, Robin Watkinson said:
“The tour of the Palace of Westminster was fascinating steeped in 1000 years of history. The highlight was Prime Minister’s question time where we experienced at first hand the cut and thrust of our political system. It was a great pleasure, to meet Jo have the opportunity to exchange views.”
