Local MP Jo Swinson met with a group of Advanced Higher Modern Studies pupils from the High School of Glasgow in Parliament last week.

The students talked to Jo about their tour of Parliament and discussed topics for their upcoming dissertations, which will count towards their final grade.

Ms Swinson said: “It was lovely to meet the staff and pupils from the High School of Glasgow last week.

“I was impressed by their interest in the history and workings of Parliament.”

She added: “We were also able to have a productive discussion about their interesting and wide-ranging dissertation topics, on everything from the impact of TV leadership debates to the role of women in US politics.”
