Pupils on the school council at Livingstone Primary had the opportunity to put questions to their MP this week.

Mohammad Yasin, Member of Parliament for Bedford and Kempston, visited the school on Clapham Road to answer questions on a wide range of topics from Brexit to global warming to shop closures in the High Street and local sports facilities.

“We were delighted to welcome our MP to Livingstone,” said head teacher Peter Thornes.

“I know that the School Council were very excited to be able to speak to him directly to discuss issues that are important to them.  We would like to thank him very much for making the time in his busy schedule to visit.”

Mohammad Yasin said, “It was a pleasure to meet some of the children from Livingstone Primary school who had ‘called’ me to their School Council Meeting.

“It was great to see the kids so engaged in politics and their community.”
