As schools return from their summer break, Carshalton & Wallington MP Tom Brake is encouraging them to get involved in this year’s UK Parliament Week.
UK Parliament Week takes place between November 14th and 20th and aims to get pupils to connect with parliament and generate a better understanding of British politics.
Tom regularly makes visits to schools around the constituency, most recently a drop-in to a Public Services BTEC class at Stanley Park High School, Carshalton on Monday 12th September. Parliament Week aims to add to that political engagement with organisations across the UK running events which explore what the UK Parliament and democracy means to them and their community.
Tom said: “Tom Brake said: "I often speak to local residents in Carshalton and Wallington who are keen to find out more about Parliament and politics. Parliament Week is a great opportunity to see how decisions made in Westminster have an impact on everyone's lives.
"Organisations can get involved through mock debates, exhibitions and lectures. More ideas can be found on the Parliament Week website.” (http://www.ukparliamentweek.org)
