Last week, Luke Graham MP visited Dollar Academy to talk with students about life as an MP. Describing a typical week, he made mention of recent debates around Brexit, Scottish Questions and Prime Minister’s Questions. He also talked about the work done throughout his constituency of Ochil and South Perthshire.
As part of the school curriculum, the pupils have been learning about the work of a Member of Parliament and Mr Graham was more than happy to answer some of the trickier questions from the students.
Commenting, Mr Graham said:
“The level of questioning from schools is always incredibly high. Dollar Academy is no exception. The students never shy away from the difficult questions, and I always try and give direct answers. Young people share many of the concerns and passions as older people and it is important politicians engage with all ages.
Students across Ochil and South Perthshire are very engaged in politics and I want give them as many opportunities as possible to question their MP.”
