Nigel Evans, Member of Parliament for the Ribble Valley, yesterday met with a group of pupils from Bowland High School who were visiting Parliament for the day. They were being looked after by Parliament’s Education Service and Mr Evans met up with the group in the afternoon.
Speaking from Westminster, Mr Evans said:
“As I walked in the pupils were finishing up a discussion on an imaginary Bill looking at the issue of capital punishment. In the wider sense they were examining the process by which a Bill becomes and Act, in essence how an idea can become law.
“Parliament’s Education Service is a fantastic resource and I am delighted that the pupils of Bowland High School were able to take advantage of it. It was a pleasure to meet them all, to talk to them and answer their questions. I am always pleased when youngsters visit Parliament because I do believe that it is vital young people have a good understanding of the political process.
“As I said to the children, there may be one or two future MPs in that group!”
