Wigan pupils quiz the Commissioner

Tony Lloyd speaks to The Deanery school

Tony took part in a question and answer session at Deanery High School in Wigan today (Wednesday 10 April).

Pupils on the Citizenship course, quizzed a panel made up of Wigan Mayor Councillor Myra Whiteside, teacher and Councillor Seve Gomez-Aspron, Chair of School Governors Reverend Hutchinson and Tony.

Tony said: “This was an extremely valuable session and the young people fielded a number of thoughtful questions, allowing for a lively and interesting discussion on a broad range of important topics ranging from sex trafficking to recycling. It’s really important that we listen to our young people, empower them to get involved in decision-making, encourage them to put forward their ideas on how we can solve some of society’s ills, such as cyber-bullying and work with them to build better, safer communities.”
