Denton and Reddish MP, Andrew Gwynne, hosted a group of visiting parliamentarians from around the world, as well as young delegates from across the UK to celebrate UK Parliament Week.
UK Parliament Week is an annual festival that engages people from across the UK with Parliament and explores what it means to them so they are empowered to get involved. Organisations across the UK run events and activities throughout UK Parliament Week which explore what the UK Parliament means to them and their community.
This year Gwynne hosted a delegation of young visitors from here at home, as well as from Commonwealth nations as part of the Westminster Youth Engagement Seminar, organised by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association. Gwynne took the group on a tour of Parliament as well as hosting a Question and Answer session in his office.
UK Parliament week runs 13-19 November, with more information available at: www.ukparliamentweek.org
Andrew Gwynne said:
“It was a pleasure to welcome this international delegation to Parliament. We discussed my role as a Member of Parliament, a member of the Shadow Cabinet, and how my constituency and Parliamentary offices work.
“The group were full of questions and were really positive towards the political process and their own generations future.”
