Young Prime Minister and her colleagues put David on the spot

Stroud’s MP had an audience with a Prime Minister and her Cabinet following an invitation to a special question and answer session this month.

The ‘question time’ took place at Bussage Primary School, where the school’s Prime Minister Hannah Jordan welcomed David Drew MP, along with her ministers; Secretarie Isabella Webb and Evie Turner, and Deputy Prime Minister Liberty Ross.

Labour MP Mr Drew learnt about Bussage School’s Parliament and its ministries: Sport, Learning Detectives, Values Ambassadors, Charity and Eco.

Mr Drew also met with the school’s headteacher Andy Ferguson to discuss education issues affecting schools across Stroud.

The pupils had the opportunity to quiz Mr Drew about democracy and issues they were concerned about, with members from all the ministries in Class 5 and 6 gathering for a question and answer session.

“There were many thoughtful questions and I enjoyed a rigorous debate with these young politicians. It was inspiring to see how interested and engaged they are with democracy,” said Mr Drew.

Mr Ferguson said; "This was a great opportunity for the children to find out first-hand about life in Westminster as well as to share some of their hopes and concerns about the future.  I also appreciated being able to discuss with Mr Drew, some of the challenges faced by schools surrounding funding."
