Speaker Brings Westminster to Leeds West


Rachel accompanied the Speaker of the House, John Bercow, today, as he visited two Leeds West schools to speak about his role and answer questions from the students.

Rachel invited the Speaker to visit schools in Leeds West as she felt that it is often difficult for schools in the area to be able to organise and afford taking groups of students down to Westminster, even with the financial assistance available for such trips, and wanted to bring ‘Westminster to Leeds West’.
