A Political View in the House of Commons

Lower Sixth Politics students, accompanied by Mrs Ahern and Mr Jones, recently traveled to London to visit the Houses of Parliament experiencing what life is like for a politician.

Touring the House of Lords with Patricia Gray, and observing the official procession the students saw John Bercow enter the chamber to take up his position as Speaker of the Commons. Also sighting Jacob Rees Mogg in the central lobby and Tim Farron.

The students attended the public gallery of the House of Commons and viewed part of a debate on rural banking (a successful Private Member’s Bill introduced under the Ten Minute rule arrangement) and another on housing, followed by the Lords question time, in which a high level of thorough debate occurred.
