MP's Column

I visited Heamoor Community Primary School to meet the newly elected School Council. I also met the other pupils who asked me some good questions about democracy in the UK. School visits are my favourite activity, not least because young people are really interested in how things work and who makes the decisions.

I also spent several hours at RNAS Culdrose. The opportunity for highly skilled specialist jobs for local people are considerable especially once the Queen Elizabeth Aircraft Carrier is in commission. The use of technology in defence now is quite astonishing.
