MP welcomes Ripon school to Westminster

Julian has welcomed pupils from St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School in Ripon to Westminster.

Pupils from Year 5 and Year 6 travelled to London, and despite a long and difficult journey, saw some of the Houses of Parliament and then asked their MP plenty of questions.

Mr Smith said:

“It was great to be able to welcome children from St Wilfrid’s School in Ripon to Westminster and talk to them about my work as their Member of Parliament. Pupils were really engaged and certainly put me through my paces by asking a wide-range of questions!

“The Parliamentary Education Service organise school visits to Parliament and I would encourage other schools across the constituency to consider visiting in the future.”
