Heeley young people visit Westminster with MP

Wednesday, March 27, 2002

Three young people from Sheffield were invited to London to visit the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Houses of Parliament on March 12th.

Meg Munn, Labour MP for Sheffield Heeley invited the young women to an Open day at the FCO (the FCO is making a concerted effort to explain to members of the public what they do, and to encourage more people from all backgrounds, including those from ethnic minorities and those with disabilities to join them.)


While at the imposing building, only yards from Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament, they heard a speech from the Rotherham MP, Denis MacShane, who is a Foreign Office Minister and met desk staff from exotic locations in the Caribbean and Central America.


Lunch was spent spotting famous people in the foyer caf? of Portcullis House, the new office block for MPs on the side of the River Thames. The girls spied John Prescott MP, Deputy Prime Minister, and Sebastian Coe, former runner and now a Lord.


The three then had a short tour of the Palace of Westminster, visiting both Houses of Parliament and sat in the gallery of the House of Commons to listen to MPs debating.


Lucy, Danielle and Heather were invited to London by Meg because they had all expressed an interest in politics and international affairs when responding to a letter she had sent them for their 18th birthdays.

Meg Munn, who made a speech in Westminster two weeks ago about the participation of young people in politics said of the visit "We should talk with young people about the things that they are interested in. Politics is about people’s daily lives; they need to know how to have their say - it can and does make a difference. I hope that Heather, Lucy and Danielle will now feel more engaged with democracy."
