Suffolk MP talks Pizza and Politics

Dr Dan Poulter particularly enjoyed his visit to Dale Hall Primary School in Ipswich on Friday 21st September, where he met with the Head Teacher and then with a group of the students from across Years 5 and 6.

The students were desperate to put their questions to their local MP, asking all about Dr Dan's work as an MP, both here in Suffolk and in Westminster. Aside from finding out more about the role of the MP, the group were also keen to find out a bit more "behind the scenes", not least of all, which was Dr Dan's favourite pizza topping. The discussion subsequently led to the students securing a pizza-making lesson over the coming weeks.

Visits such as these are important in strengthening the link between what Dr Dan does as an MP locally and how he can make sure that the voice of our communities here in Suffolk are heard in Parliament and Dr Dan looks forward to perhaps welcoming Dale Hall Primary School to Parliament in the not too distant future.

Aside from speaking to the students, Dr Dan was also concerned to learn about the recent suspected arson attack on the school's play equipment, destroying a Wendy House and putting the entire school building in danger also. Speaking to the Head Teacher, Dr Dan shares the concerns about the need for improved security fencing and he is keen to support the school further in securing the necessary improvements as a priority.

It is hard to deliver that when we have a taxpayer-funded NHS and a social care system in which many people now have to pay for their own care. In looking for a...

Offensive Weapons Bill: Ipswich-London Rail Fares (15 Oct 2018)
Daniel Poulter: I thank my hon. Friend’s welcome news on capping rail fares, but does he not also agree that it is difficult for customers to disaggregate the cost of the fare—those in Ipswich are very high per mile by national standards—from reliability and speed of service? Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
