Ruffley to listen to Stowmarket Middle on scrapping middle schools

Wednesday, 25 April, 2007

David Ruffley MP will be visiting Stowmarket Middle School on Friday 27 April to give students a 'bird's eye' view of the House of Commons and the process of a debate.

David will be met by David Etchells Butler, Head of Geography, and will be listening to what staff at the school have to say about plans to scrap three tier education.

David said:

'I am eagerly anticipating my visit to Stowmarket Middle School. I always enjoy meeting with staff and students at the school and have every confidence that this occasion will be no different.

'It will be interesting to hear what staff at the school think about the proposed scrapping of our middle schools in Suffolk. I will be sure to relay whatever views are passed to me onto the County Council.

'I will also be giving the school's students a 'bird's eye' view of how the House of Commons works and the process of a debate.

'I am sure the students will come up with some interesting questions and I hope to give them a clearer understanding of the work that MPs do in the House of Commons.'
