Dr Dan Questioned by North Ipswich Students in Parliament

Students from a North Ipswich school have had the opportunity to question Dr Dan in the Houses of Parliament.

The Dale Hall Primary School students, who are members of the School Council, learnt about the history of Parliament on their tour and then had a question and answer session with Dr Dan, who has visited the students at their school on a number of occasions. The students asked him a range of questions on local and national topics, including how Dr Dan is helping to solve flooding problems in North Ipswich, how he has helped to reinstate a local bus route and what his job as an MP and as an NHS hospital doctor entails.

After meeting with the students, Dr Dan said:

"Visiting Parliament is always a memorable experience and it offers young people the opportunity to learn about Britain's history, democracy and our law making process.

"It is always a top priority for me to take the time out of my busy schedule to speak with younger constituents about my role as their MP in order to encourage their interests in how Government and democracy works. I welcomed the opportunity to answer a variety of well informed questions from the pupils and I look forward to visiting the school again in the near future."

I know she...
