Back to where it all started

Heeley MP Meg Munn recently visited her old school, Mundella Primary, to answer questions from Y3 and Y6 pupils. This visit to Mundella was extra special for Meg as it will be her last one as the MP for the area she grew up in.
The children asked Meg a wide range of questions, and they also had a lively debate and vote in true parliamentary style on whether or not the Queen was important. They concluded that the United Kingdom would be better off with a President.
One pupil in particular really impressed Meg with his maths skills after working out in a matter of seconds how long ago it was that Meg attended Mundella herself.
“As the MP for Sheffield Heeley for 14 years I have been privileged to do a whole range of interesting things. But by far the favourite part of the job, and what I will miss the most, are the visits to local schools and conversations with children. Their sensible questioning of what I was up to, and why I took a particular position, is something I will miss greatly.”
