Langley Park Girls School

 

Bob Stewart MP has met and spoken to pupils from Langley Park Girls School on their visit to Parliament. 32 AS level students, accompanied by teacher Chris Stratton, were given a full tour of Parliament, including a lesson on how democracy in the UK works.

Bob joined the students for a question & answer session about his career in the army and Parliament. Asked about the pressures of being an MP Bob said: "It's stressful if you let it be, but having been in combat, having lost good soldiers under my command, I always stop and say to myself no one's has actually died."

Questioned about the proposed rise in University tuition fees Bob assured them: "No one wants to charge higher fees to go to University. Unfortunately the state of the economy and the severe debt our country is in means we're stuck with it."
