The General Election came to PGS this week as we welcomed candidates from four of the offical parties standing in Portsmouth South on Wednesday. After an introduction from Mr Simon Lemieux who gave some background to the constituency and that in recent years it has been represented by all three main parties, each of the candidates were given 4 minutes to speak before taking questions from the pupils.
Each of the candidates clearly stated their key priorities and what they would bring to the city. Questions from the pupils covered public spending, party unity, crime, building relationships with local schools and, of course, Brexit.
Thank you to Mr Lemieux for organising the event and to all the pupils for being such an engaged and informed audience.
