Huppert goes back to school to meet the voters of the future
MP Julian Huppert went back to school this morning (Monday, November 18) to tell the young politicians and voters of the future about his work in Parliament.
Julian dropped in to Cambridge’s Spinney Primary School in Hayster Drive and the new Trumpington Meadows Primary School in Kestrel Rise for visits organised to mark Parliament Week.
Parliament Week is a UK-wide programme of events and activities designed to inspire, engage and connect people with parliamentary democracy. Members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords support the initiative.
Julian said: “It was great meeting the children. They had plenty of questions about my job and wanted to know all about how the work I do in Parliament affects their lives in Cambridge. They asked really interesting questions!
“It’s good to get youngsters thinking about how politics shapes their local environment, how the decisions are made and how they will have a say in who represents them in Parliament in years to come.
“If they show an interest now hopefully they will be more inclined to take part in the future and turn out to vote in local as well as national elections.”
