Black Country MP visits local school

Stourbridge MP, Suzanne Webb visited Old Swinford Hospital school to answer questions from Year 12 and 13 politics students.

Suzanne was invited by teacher Andrew Hannah and gave a brief introduction and background about how she got into politics followed by a Q&A session with the 29 students.

The MP talked about the exciting regeneration plans in progress for Lye and Stourbridge High Street, her campaign against knife crime in the West Midlands and she discussed how she overcame the obstacles of being a woman in politics and in business.

She also explained about the legislative process and her role as a government whip. Suzanne said:

“Many thanks to the OSH students for a great time and some great questions! Everyone was very well informed and interested in how our democracy and government works."

Andrew Hannah added: “The students were delighted to welcome Suzanne Webb along to OSH for a short presentation followed by a lively question and answer session.

“Suzanne spoke briefly about her background in business and her route into Conservative politics before giving the students an opportunity to ask several probing questions about local, national and international issues.

“Topics under discussion included women in politics, the role of an MP in parliament and their constituency, knife crime, the forthcoming general election and developments in Stourbridge High Street.

“Other areas discussed included Rwanda, the NHS and the premiership of Liz Truss. Suzanne was forthright in her opinions and showed a willingness to engage with the students and explain her point of view. Students were then able to go back to the classroom and discuss their opinions based upon what they had heard.”
