Bill Esterson MP met with a group of second year Edge Hill students at Labour conference to discuss politics, why people attend conference and a sense of the topics hotly debated during the four days.
Bill introduced them to Angela Raynor, Shadow Education Secretary, during her ‘Education not Segregation’ campaign opposing the Conservative proposed legislation of bringing back Grammar schools and Secondary Moderns.
The Labour MP said “It was great to meet with a group of young students so involved in politics. There was such range of political thought, I had a really interesting discussion and hope they learnt a lot from their trip. I would like to thank their Senior Lecturer Paula Keaveny for having organised the day, and also thank the students who got involved in the Education not Segregation campaign with Angela. For an important campaign such as this to succeed, we need the interest and involvement of such bright and concerned individuals.”
