STUDENTS from Hyde Clarendon Sixth Form College visited the Houses of Parliament to learn more about the workings of government.
As part of this trip the 22 students met with Stalybridge and Hyde MP Jonathan Reynolds, who told them about his own path to Parliament and then answered their questions.
The students were keen to learn about the daily routine in the House of Commons and the responsibilities of a constituency MP, as well as information about the Labour Party and the Co-operative Party.
Following the visit Mr Reynolds said: “It was fantastic to meet with the students and to talk to them about the role and workings of Parliament. They were clearly interested about the process of Government and politics in Britain – and I was pleased to have the opportunity to meet with them.”
Later the students left Parliament and visited the Old Bailey.
