Blackpool North & Cleveleys MP, Paul Maynard, welcomed students from Blackpool’s Unity College to Parliament yesterday.  The four students, along with teacher Katie Heron, enjoyed a full tour, lunch and meeting with the Secretary of State for International Development, Andrew Mitchell MP.

Commenting, Paul says,

“I was delighted to welcome the students from Unity College to Parliament.  I invited them down after meeting with them 3 months ago to discuss what it is like to be a teenager in Blackpool.  The group had the full tour of both Houses.  We met with Andrew Mitchell, the Secretary of State for International Development, where they heard about the work the Government is doing in preventing the premature death of children in other countries from preventable disease.

After leaving Parliament, they walked down to Buckingham Palace and visited other famous landmarks before heading home on the train.  I enjoyed welcoming them, and I gather the students and teacher did also.  I am always open to school visits or anyone from Blackpool North & Cleveleys visiting me in Parliament.  After all I am their MP and the Houses of Parliament are their Parliament.”
