Blackpool North & Cleveleys MP, Paul Maynard today writes to 27 schools and colleges in the area asking them to come and visit Parliament. The House of Parliament runs a successful educational services and travel costs can be subsidise up to 75% by Parliament. An educational visit starts with a tour of both Houses, a meeting with the MP and various workshops on what democracy is and how Governments work.

Paul says, “I often see parties of school children being shown around Parliament and they all look so happy and enthused. I feel that young people will get a great deal out of a visit to Parliament and I look forward to welcoming groups from many different schools in Blackpool and Cleveleys. All too often democracy can seem remote and irrelevant to our everyday lives. It is indeed the exact opposite and plays a major role in how we live. If young people can get a taste and understanding of this importance from an early age, then maybe that will lead to engagement later on. I really do hope that one of the pupils that visits will challenge, replace or join me in Parliament in years to come”
