Iain welcomes Longniddry pupils to Parliament

A group of P7 pupils from Longniddry Primary School have been welcomed to the Scottish Parliament by Iain Gray MSP.

The group arranged their trip to Holyrood through Parliament’s Education Outreach service, which arranges for thousands of pupils from across Scotland to visit each year.

Mr Gray met with the pupils during the visit, spoke to them about his role representing the East Lothian constituency in Parliament and answered some of their questions about the way Parliament works.

Iain Gray MSP said:

“It’s always a great pleasure to welcome groups of pupils from East Lothian to Holyrood. These visits have always been regular events, but they seem to have become even more common in recent times, with local schools here on almost weekly basis.

“This is a very positive sign as it demonstrates the enthusiasm in schools to learn about our democracy and the way in which Parliament functions and laws are made. I enjoyed welcoming this latest group from Longniddry and was pleased to answer some of their questions.”
