Rt Hon David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, welcomed a group of exchange students to the Palace of Westminster yesterday afternoon, 6 July.
The pupils, from The Shri Ram School in Delhi, India, are undertaking an exchange programme with Townley Grammar School in Bexleyheath. As part of their visit, they were invited to Westminster to learn more about our Parliamentary process and see the historic buildings.
After being shown Westminster Hall, St Stephen’s Hall and Central Lobby, they were taken to Portcullis House for a question and answer session, during which they learnt about the role of an MP and Government Whip.
They were accompanied on their visit by Townley Headteacher, Desmond Deehan, and members of staff.
