Portsmouth South MP Flick Drummond hosted students from Mayville High School to Parliament where they heard about how government works

The student council from the school in St Simon’s Road, Southsea, were able to see "behind the scenes" before meeting with Flick for a round table discussion about her work in Parliament and in Portsmouth.

Afterwards, the group watched Defence Questions in the House of Commons.

'It’s always a pleasure to see young people so interested in politics and government and it was good to see how informed the students were,” said Flick.

'Topics I was questioned on included how to get more women into politics So I certainly didn’t get an easy time during the discussions.

'Many thanks to the school for coming up to Westminster'.
