Debenham High School welcomes local MP, Dr Dan Poulter

A regular visitor to Debenham High School, our local MP Dr Dan Poulter was pleased to meet with students from across years 9, 10 and 11 during a visit there today, where they had the opportunity to learn more about the role of an MP, both in Westminster and here in the Central Suffolk and North Ipswich constituency.

Dr Dan was welcomed by Head Teacher, Julia Upton, before joining the group of students for an in-depth and varied Question and Answer session, with questions focussing on Brexit policy, environmental and fiscal matters, and mental health.  The cohort of students were incredibly engaged with current politics and enjoyed putting their many and challenging questions directly to their local MP.

After talking with the students, Dr Dan added that "It's always gratifying to see our outstanding students and young adults here in Suffolk so engaged with politics and the wider issues, especially putting forward such carefully considered and well informed questions. Debenham High School always offers me an exceptionally warm welcome and it was abundantly clear that the students had very carefully considered their views in preparing their challenging questions."
