CAROLINE PROMOTES PARLIAMENT WEEK

Local MP Caroline Dinenage is encouraging local schools and community groups to get involved in Parliament Week.

Parliament Week is a programme of events and activities that connect people across the UK with Parliament and democracy; the annual initiative kicks off on Monday 14 November and will run until Friday 18 November.

Caroline will be hosting students from Brune Park in Westminster and visiting schools as part of Parliament Week this year. In previous years she has hosted debates and Q&A sessions at St Vincent, Bay House and CEMAST.

Speaking ahead of Parliament Week, Caroline said:

"Parliament Week is a great way to engage young people with both politics and Parliament. I always enjoy getting involved with the initiative every year.

I am looking forward to meeting a number of students and listening to their opinions on topics which are big issues in Parliament at the moment”

Parliament Week is co-ordinated by the House of Commons with support from the House of Lords.
