Dan continued his focus on meeting with young people and our hardworking teachers when he visited to Stradbroke Primary School last week. He was given a tour of the rural primary school by Headteacher Mrs Melanie Barrow, before speaking to the Year 6 Student Council about the work he does as your local MP and answering their questions on a number of issues, both local and national.
