On February 1 2012 Shabana Mahmood MP met with students from the Heartlands Academy when they travelled to Westminster for a tour of the Houses of Parliament. The group of students were aged between 12-14, all of whom were keen to learn about Shabana’s work as their MP in Parliament and the constituency.
The group asked questions about the history of Parliament, transition to democracy, current political issues and her work in Parliament. Shabana explained her role as the Shadow Minister for Higher Education and how she represents her constituents by raising their concerns in Parliament.
Shabana said, “Meeting with pupils from the Heartlands Academy was fantastic, and it is always a pleasure to meet with young people from my constituency. I enjoyed hearing their feedback of the tour and answering any questions they have about my role as their MP. I would welcome the chance to meet with more groups and schools when they visit Parliament.”
