YOUNGSTERS quizzed their MP about life as a politician on a trip to the House of Commons.

A group of 20 children from four schools in Gosport went to London to see the town’s MP, Caroline Dinenage.

The pupils, aged between eight and 14, were given a tour of the House of Commons and spent an hour with their MP to find out more about her work.

Debbie De la Haye, one of the organisers, said: ‘It was a very busy trip and they had a fantastic tour of the House of Commons.

‘They also presented Caroline and her staff with a large thank you card which they had all signed. The children are so grateful to the people that made this trip possible and would like to say a big thank you.’

Afterwards, they were taken on a visit to the National History Museum.

The trip, on May 1, was funded with help from Gosport Councillor Graham Burgess, First Wessex Housing Association, Rowner Carnival and Court Zone Rowner.

The youngsters came from schools including Siskin Juniors, Haselworth Primary and Brune Park Community College.
