Pupils Invited to Spend a Day in Parliament

Macclesfield sixth formers are being invited by local Member of Parliament David Rutley to attend a Parliamentary Induction Day on Tuesday 24th October. David has held several of these events over recent years.

On the day, which runs from 9.00 am until 4.30 pm, interested sixth form students will have the opportunity to watch debates in the public galleries of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, sit in on a Select Committee, and be given a guided tour of the historic Palace of Westminster. David will also join students for a Question and Answer session.

The event will enable up to ten local sixth formers interested in politics to learn more about the Parliamentary process and how our democratic institutions work. Any local students interested in attending the induction day should contact David’s Westminster office by email at david.rutley.mp@parliament.uk. Previous days have proved very popular, and so students are encouraged to register their interest as soon as possible, in order to ensure that they have a place. Students should also include their age, school or college, address and phone number.

David said, “Engaging the next generation in our political processes and encouraging them to become active citizens is vital, and I am pleased to be able to organise this event once again. I would encourage any local young person interested to attending this Parliamentary Induction Day to contact my office as soon as possible. I look forward to welcoming Macclesfield students to Parliament on 24th October.”
