Dr Neil Hudson met with a group of Year 11 students from Samuel King’s School in Alston on their visit to Parliament.
During a busy day of Prime Minister’s Questions and debating the King’s Speech, Dr Hudson made time to meet with students and answer their questions about his role and pressing issues for young people.
The Year 11 group face a decision about what next step they take in life, but with Dr Hudson having secured a bespoke bus service to get Alston Moor youngsters to college, their options remain open. Read more about that issue here.
Schools in Penrith and The Border are eligible for a 75% travel subsidy courtesy of UK Parliament’s Education and Engagement Service and Dr Hudson is encouraging local school to take advantage of a visit to Westminster. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Dr Neil Hudson MP said:
“It was a delight to meet the wonderful students and staff of Samuel King’s when they visited London this week. We discussed important developments with a bus service to get some of them to college next year that I helped secure as well as digital connectivity, mental health and the recent King’s Speech.
“For schools in rural areas like ours, I think students have so much to gain from visiting our capital and its renowned institutions. Therefore, I would absolutely encourage educators to get in touch with me and I would be more than happy to help facilitate visits to Parliament.”
