Brake Put in Hot Seat by Collingwood School Pupils

Tom Brake with some of the pupils from Collingwood School

Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington, was the guest of Collingwood School Year 6 pupils last Friday morning.

In a lively Question and Answer session, Tom was questioned about why he chose to became an MP (because he was wanted to do something about the environment), what he didn't like about the job (the number of emails!) and whether he had met the Queen (twice very briefly).

Tom said after the event, "I always find Q+As with school pupils very refreshing. They always want to talk about real things, not the political scandal of the day! Collingwood pupils were no exception, their questions were pertinent and pointed."

Year 6 pupils are likely to have a further opportunity to put Mr Brake on the spot during a future visit to Parliament.

Collingwood School is an independent school in Springfield Road in Wallington.

    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.
