Dan regularly meets with young people in our local schools and colleges in Suffolk and always enjoys listening to their views and concerns. Last week, he visited Thomas Mills High School, where he enjoyed a lively question and answer session with a large group of Sixth-form students. Dan spoke about his role as your local MP, and listed some of his achievements for residents in Suffolk since being elected in 2010, including helping to secure £11.5 million in Government funding that will provide high-speed internet speeds for homes, businesses and schools in areas such as Framlingham. A number of other topics were raised during the question and answer session, including the crisis in the Eurozone, House of Lords reform and the importance of better looking after our growing ageing population.

Dan thoroughly enjoyed answering the students’ questions, and would like to thank Head of Sixth-form John Jennings for inviting him to visit.
