An insight into how the House of Lords operates was given to local students when Lord Philip Norton visited Skegness Grammar School.
Lord Norton gave a talk to sixth form students last Friday - discussing the role the House of Lords plays - along with other political issues in the UK.
Student Henry Houlden said: “The presentation provided an informative and insightful look into the life of a Lord. His sense of humour put us all at ease and he encouraged us to ask him a wide range of questions.”
Speaking to the Standard, Lord Nelson commented: “I was impressed by the engagement of the students. They showed a lively interest in the range of issues I raised with them as well as asking some highly pertinent and informed questions. They were a credit to the school.”
School principal Heather Scott added: “It has been an enormous privilege for our students to be able to meet Lord Norton in person and to hear for themselves about the work of the House of Lords.”
