POLITICS students were given the chance to quiz their MP in Parliament.

Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage invited 27 students from Bay House School in Gomer Lane to visit the Houses of Parliament.

They were shown the workings of Westminster before having a question and answer session with their MP.

Ms Dinenage, pictured, said: ‘It was fantastic to see some familiar faces from Bay House when they came to visit.

‘These trips provide a great opportunity to see the important work that takes place here.

‘It gives them the chance to interact with their local MP in an informal setting.

‘I’ve faced some tough questions in the past from school groups and expected no less from Bay House.’

Ms Dinenage was quizzed on a range of topics during the day, including the Falkland Islands, quangos, and the Daedalus Enterprise Zone.
