School children got to grill an MP as part of their studies into politics.

The school council from New Mills Primary School visited the People’s History Museum, in Manchester, for a day organised by the Parliamentary Service to coincide with UK Parliamentary Week.

The children had a question and answer session with Lucy Powell, the Labour MP for Manchester Central, followed by a presentation from a member of the Parliamentary Education Service about the Houses of Parliament.
