Local business forums and Archbishop Sancroft High School students get a flavour of Westminster after tour with South Norfolk MP
Members of Diss and Harleston Business Forums have been getting an insight into life at Westminster after they were given a tour of the Houses of Parliament by South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon on Monday.
The Conservative MP spent an hour showing members around the corridors of power with visits to both the Commons and Lords chambers, where he was able to give a flavour of how parliament works.
They were also joined by eight Year 9 students from Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston, who posed questions to Mr Bacon and forum members were able to discuss the latest developments in government policy.
Brian Bale, Diss Business Forum Chair, said “This was an excellent opportunity for local businesses to meet their local MP at his place of work for a very interesting and humorous tour. Richard never disappoints in his enthusiasm and dry wit.”
Archbishop Sancroft student Grace Molenaar said added: “The intricate back story of the buildings make the beautiful architecture even more interesting.”
