Richard Benyon MP talks with the Downs School Sixth Form

This morning, Richard Benyon visited The Downs School in Compton, to talk to sixth formers about his day to day role as a Member of Parliament and to discuss key issues including voting, the environment, reform of the European Union and Scotland's independence referenda. 

Richard said, "It is always an enormous pleasure to visit The Downs and to discuss current affairs with students. It was also a chance to congratulate the school on being rated as Outstanding by Ofsted and this was reflected in the intelligence of the student’s questions."
