Michael Welcomes Youth Council to Parliament

Michael with members of the Sevenoaks Youth Council in Parliament.

Michael yesterday welcomed members of the Sevenoaks Youth Council to Westminster.

Led by Sevenoaks Town Council Chief Executive Linda Larter, the group received a tour of the Palace of Westminster before meeting Michael in one of Parliament’s historic committee rooms.

Michael answered questions on a range of topics relating to his responsibilities as Secretary of State for Defence, including North Korea, cyber security and nuclear proliferation.

The group were also able to watch Michael from the public gallery in the House of Commons as he answered questions from MPs.

Michael said: “I was delighted to welcome members of Sevenoaks Youth Council to Parliament.  With their perceptive and intelligent questions, they showed that young people in my constituency are increasingly interested in major political issues.  I always enjoy welcoming people to see how Parliament works and look forward to hosting more schools and community groups soon.”
