A Bearsden couple toured Westminster with local MP Jo Swinson.
Robin and Urszula Watkinson contacted the MP’s office a few months ago to organise a visit to Parliament – a service that she is encouraging constituents to take advantage of.
Mr and Mrs Watkinson took in the rich history of Westminster on a Parliamentary tour, then met Ms Swinson for a chat about issues of the day before watching Prime Minister’s Questions from the public gallery.
The MP said: “It was a real pleasure to meet Mr and Mrs Watkinson - speaking to constituents is one of the most important parts of my job and it’s great to hear from local people when they visit London.
“If organised through the MP, parliamentary tours are free, so I would encourage any interested East Dunbartonshire residents to get in touch if they’d like to plan a Westminster visit. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call my office on 0141 7622209.”
Mr Watkinson said: “The tour of the Palace of Westminster was fascinating steeped in 1000 years of history. The highlight was Prime Minister’s question time where we experienced at first hand the cut and thrust of our political system. It was a great pleasure, to meet Jo have the opportunity to exchange views.”
