Crosby MP Bill Esterson gets quizzed by pupils at Valewood Primary

 Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson with staff and pupils during his visit to Crosby's Valewood Primary.

Crosby's MP Bill Esterson was quizzed by children at Valewood Primary School about why he had wanted to be a Member of Parliament.

Children from each class asked the MP a question when he visited a few weeks after some of the children had been to parliament for the day.
 
Bill Esterson said: "The children asked some great questions including why did I want to be an MP and what the best and worst parts of the job are?
 
"I told them that I wanted to make a difference and that the best parts of the jobs are visiting schools and meeting children like them. The worst part is having to be away from my own children from Monday to Thursday when I am in parliament and they are at home in Maghull.
 
"I was also asked about the minimum wage so you can tell that the questions were a real mixture.
 
"The children in Year 6 had been to parliament recently but unfortunately I was unable to meet them so I was thrilled that we could finally meet up at school.
 
"Hopefully I will meet the children next year when they visit.
 
"I really enjoy going around the schools in my constituency. Last week it was St Luke’s. This week was St George’s and Valewood.
 
"Each school is different and each one has some great staff and children.
 
"Thank you to Valewood, to the staff and the children for making me so welcome."
