Sparsholt in the House!

Thirty four children from Sparsholt Primary School visited Parliament on Monday 18th September, as they learnt more about how Parliament works and what MPs do in the House and in their constituencies.

The group of Year 5 and Year 6 students were able to take a tour of Parliament, before spending time with Steve Brine to take part in a question and answer session.

Steve told them about his role as an MP in the Commons, a Minister in Government and also his role as a constituency MP, and was especially able to highlight the importance of the casework he carries out.

Steve said: "Sparsholt were a really nice group to have visit, and it was a real pleasure to be able to speak with them after their tour. I hope they had a great day, and it was great to be able to show them my Ministerial box!"

Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)
Steve Brine: I simply say to the hon. Gentleman, who has not been present for the debate, that that point has been made. I also point out that we are giving £16 billion of ring-fenced public health spending to councils in England, which is significant. However, I shall come back to his point if he will bear with me. To achieve the ambitions in the plan, we need to recognise that smoking is...

Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)
Steve Brine: I thank the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson), my ministerial shadow and my friend—she certainly is that. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Rother Valley (Sir Kevin Barron) on securing this important debate. The Backbench Business Committee was an excellent innovation that arrived in this House at the same time as me—there is no correlation...
