This morning, we welcomed the Right Honourable John Glen MP into school. He spoke, during assembly, about his career to date and about the two elements of being an MP. Firstly, his work in the constituency, where he holds surgeries every Friday morning and where he acts as an advocate for his constituents and is held accountable by the voters. Secondly, his role as Under Secretary of State for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
He spoke about the importance of being actively interested in politics and the role that Parliament plays in our system of democratic governance.
