Students from three Chesterfield schools got the chance to grill Toby Perkins MP on all things political and his life as an MP as part of UK Parliament Week.

Parliament Week is a programme of events and activities run every November that connects people with the UK Parliament and increases awareness of how our democracy works. Toby Perkins visited Parkside Community School, St Mary’s Catholic High School and Hady Primary School for Q&A sessions with students.

Toby said, “Parliament Week is all about connecting the public with Parliament and MPs going into schools helps engage people with politics from an early age. The variety of questions I took shows that the children and young people in Chesterfield are from apathetic and are keen to learn about how politics and politicians shape our society and affect all our lives”.
