Cockenzie P7s quiz Iain at Holyrood

A group of P7 pupils from Cockenzie Primary School are the latest schoolchildren from the county to visit the Scottish Parliament.

The visit was organised through the Parliament’s excellent Education Service, which helps to inform and engage young people from across Scotland who are interested in finding out more about the work of Parliament.

As well as having a tour of Parliament and learning more about the way it works, the pupils also had the opportunity to quiz local MSP, Iain Gray.

Speaking after the visit Iain Gray MSP said:

“Barely a week goes by without a school group from East Lothian visiting Holyrood via the education service. It’s always a pleasure to welcome them to the building and answer their questions.

“This latest group from Cockenzie Primary School were well prepared with a range of good questions about both the mechanics of Parliament and the legislative process and topical policy and political issues.

“I look forward to welcoming many more pupils from East Lothian to Holyrood during the rest of this parliamentary term.”
