Students witness Brexit history

It was a historic day for British history, and Welshpool High School students were there to witness it first-hand.

Glyn Davies, Montgomeryshire MP, welcomed students from to Westminster for a tour of Parliament before holding a Q&A session with Glyn.

But the biggest surprise came when they entered the gallery to view the Prime Minister in the Chamber.

Mr Davies said: “I am very keen that young people visit Westminster and learn about the way in which we are governed, and so I was delighted that 20 students from Welshpool High School joined me for a discussion.

“So much is happening in UK politics at present that the unpredictability must make politics extremely interesting for students who are studying it.

“It also turned out to be a significant day at Westminster. The formal Act of Parliament, which authorises the Prime Minister to Invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty by which the UK will leave the EU, received Royal Assent.

“And the students were then able to enter the gallery to watch the Prime Minister make a Statement, reporting back on a European Council Meeting.

“I hope they enjoyed their day.”
