Philip met with pupils at Bradford Christian School and faced questions from the young people wanting to know what life was like as an MP.
He was invited by teacher Jacquey Mackenzie, who works in the Autism Provision at the Bolton Woods school, to speak with some of the pupils many who are currently learning about voting, MPs and Parliament.
Philip gave a talk to the students before answering all their questions.
He said: “It was lovely to visit the school and be able to chat with the students. It is clear they had put a lot of hard work into preparing their questions and were really interested in learning everything I could tell them about life as an MP and in general about the Houses of Parliament.”
Mrs Mackenzie added: “We really appreciated Philip coming to visit our Autism Provision and sharing with us more of what it means to be an MP. Our upper school students composed some in-depth and varied questions to ask Philip for their brief of finding out about their local MP. It was a really good time of interaction, listening, sharing and learning. Our thanks go to Philip for his interest in our students.”
