Withybrook Parliament VisitA group of villagers had a fascinating day out at the House of Commons on October 15th as guests of our MP Mark Pawsey.  The day started with a tour of the Palace of Westminster.  The group were taken through the corridors of power including both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, as well as the robing room used by the Queen ahead of her annual address to Parliament.

After their tour, Mark was able to arrange for the group to sit in the public gallery of the House of Commons, where they were able to watch both questions to Government Ministers and a statement by the Prime Minister, Theresa May, on the progress of the Brexit negotiations.
