Brake Visits Wilson School

March 22, 2007 2:59 PM

On Monday 19 March, Tom Brake MP, Liberal Democrat for Carshalton and Wallington visited Wilson School in Mollison Drive in Wallington, giving the local students a chance to pick the brains of their MP.

At 9:05 a.m. students from the Upper Sixth began to quiz Tom on what it was like to be an MP.

Not surprisingly the inquiries ranged from a question on the Liberal Democrat policy on university tuition and top-up fees (the Liberal Democrats are opposed) to whether the Lib Dems would enter into a coalition government with either the Tories or Labour after the elections (he said the Liberal Democrats will seek to maximise the number of votes and elected Lib Dem MPs).

Speaking on the engagement, Tom commented,

"It's great to see that young people are this interested in their local and national government. As I could tell from their line of questioning, they have been following local, national and international events closely. I would be surprised if in years to come a number of them were not gracing those famous green benches."

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
