North Cornwall’s MP, Dan Rogerson, today (Tuesday) welcomed five students of Wadebridge School to the Palace of Westminster.

The students are studying politics and came to visit Parliament, and their local Liberal Democrat MP, to find out how the institutions at the heart of our political system operate.

Commenting after the visit, Mr Rogerson said:

“These students of Wadebridge School will soon be able vote themselves. The issues that matter to them will be at very heart of political debate in coming years.

“Growing up in North Cornwall, I didn’t get the opportunity to see Parliament at work so it’s great to see a group of young people, taking an active interest in British politics and democracy, and able to visit Westminster to see what happens here.

“They had lots of good questions, and put me on the spot on a range of issues, particularly housing, which is such a key concern for people across Cornwall.

“I hope they will consider their day a valuable one, and will keep me in touch with what they’re doing.

“As the youngest man in the House of Commons, I hope that some of them might one day want to seek election themselves.”
