MP Visits West Park Primary School for a Q&A 

Bridgend MP Madeleine Moon met with 6th year pupils at West Park Primary School this week to congratulate them on their recent Estyn Report and take part in an Question and Answer session.

Around 50 pupils filled the classroom to meet with Madeleine Moon MP and take part in the Q&A.

Madeleine said:

"All the pupils were eager to ask questions and there were so many hands in the air it was difficult to know where to start.  Their questions were all very good. They were well informed on the current campaign to stop smoking in cars when carrying children which was given a definite seal of approval. There was lots of concern about Mr Gove and his ideas to extend the school day for pupils until 6pm.  I did impress on them it was only for Schools in England as Education was devolved in Wales to the Welsh Government.

"Their questions ranged from -How often did I meet with David Cameron, did I always want to be an MP, why did I choose the Labour Party and what are the three best and three worst things about being an MP.  They also asked about my thoughts on the NHS struggling to meet demand and the cuts in the Police and Fire Service.

"I was amused by one question on voting in the aye lobby on the right and voting in the no lobby on the left, the pupils had interpreted this as the eyes and nose lobbies, something I will tell the Speaker about when I get back to the House.

"Their questions were impressive and at the end of the Q&A I invited them all up to Westminster in a few months time to come and visit me where I work, which was met with many hands in the air and smiling faces."
