SOUTH LEICESTERSHIRE’S Tory MP, Alberto Costa, welcomed pupils from Millfield LEAD Academy in Braunstone Town to Parliament.
Pupils from Year 3 and Year 6 paid a visit to Westminster, where they were given a tour of the Houses of Parliament and joined in with the workshops in the Parliament Education Unit.
After they had taken part in the workshops, the local MP met up with the pupils to discuss the important of democracy, as well as answer any of their questions in a question and answer sessions about his role as a Member of Parliament (MP).
Commenting on the school’s visit to Westminster, Alberto said: “I was really delighted to welcome the pupils from Millfield LEAD Academy to Parliament recently.
“One of the very best parts of my job as MP is to speak to young people across South Leicestershire, about my role as their MP, and the importance of our Parliamentary democracy.
“I do very much hope the visiting pupils from Millfield enjoyed their visit, and I was really grateful to them for taking the time to visit Westminster and for asking such insightful questions during our question and answer session.”
