Thank you very much for arranging a tour of the Houses of Parliament for us all and especially when we got to meet you and see Prime Minister's Questions.

We really enjoyed hearing the history of the building on our tour and about the robing room. We also liked seeing the different portraits of all the previous Kings and Queens.

During Prime Minister's Questions there was a question from Nicky Morgan about encouraging more girls to be involved with politics, which we thought was good and an interesting topic as we have only had two female Prime Minister's so far!
We saw ourselves on the TV, as Mummy had recorded Prime Minister's Questions , and the building looks much more amazing in real life than it does on the television.

Some of my friends are not very interested in politics. However, when we discussed what we'd had been up to in half term, they said politics sounded more interesting after hearing what we had done.

The pictures we took did not come out very well I know you are very busy but if you can, would you minding sending me the ones you took so I can show my friends.

Thank you very much, we really enjoyed the opportunity of visiting.
