Question Time session at Haslingden High School

This morning I attended a Question Time session at Haslingden High School with Jake Berry MP for Rossendale and Darwen and Cllr Steve Hughes from Rossendale Borough Council. Pupils in Year 11 and the 6th Form asked questions about education, the NHS, the criminal justice system and even Channel 4's Benefit Street programme.

Young people are the future of the constituency and I'm always pleased to attend school sessions and to meet young people. I believe that more should be done to engage with young people and I hope that pupils found the morning informative.

I'd like to thank the school for inviting me this morning and I look forward to going back to the school in the future.
