Local MP, David Rutley, was back in the classroom recently when he visited Macclesfield's Fallibroome Academy for a question-and-answer session with politics students from the school's sixth form.
David joined the students during their regular Friday morning politics class, following a busy week in Parliament. The students had a number of thoughtful and interesting questions to ask David, on a range of national issues and current events, including the UK's withdrawal from the EU. In addition, David spoke about his work on local campaigns, including the ongoing initiatives to regenerate the town centre.
The visit followed Fallibroome Academy students' trip to Parliament earlier this year, when they met with David in Parliament's dedicated Education Centre, and learned more about his work representing Macclesfield as an MP in Parliament, and the importance of the UK's democratic traditions.
David is always pleased to welcome local schools and meet with students in Parliament, to hear their views. Any schools that are interested in organising a visit to the Houses of Parliament can find further details through the UK Parliament website, at: www.parliament.uk/education
Speaking after his visit, David said, "It was a pleasure to once again visit Fallibroome Academy and to meet with the politics A Level class. I was impressed by the thoughtful and interesting questions I was asked and the clear interest shown by the students in current affairs and our democratic institutions.”
