The youngsters were given a tour of the Palace of Westminster and an interactive session on political processes organised by the Parliamentary Education Centre.T
They were then invited to put their questions to Ms Ghani – who at the same time reassured them about coronavirus and explained what steps the government is taking to protect the environment.
Ms Ghani told the Express: “It is fantastic to see not one, but two Wealden schools visiting parliament. As always, I was impressed with how up-to-date and relevant the questions from the floor were.
“These tours and Q&A sessions are great opportunities to get children interested in politics and the works of our precious democracy.
“I must thank the hard-working Wealden teachers and volunteers who make these sessions a success.
“Every year for the past five years, I have written to every primary school in Wealden encouraging them to book a visit to parliament.
“I made a pledge, back in 2015, and at every election since, to open up parliament to the next generation of leaders and inspire our students to never hold back in achieving their dream job.”
