YOUNGSTERS from Longney Primary School grilled Stroud MP Neil Carmichael about the Government’s commitment to the environment during a question and answer session recently.

Along with headteacher Penny Cartwright, the Conservative politician took part in a Question Time style discussion with members of the primary school’s Eco Club and pupils from Class 4.

He answered questions on issues ranging from hedgehog numbers and the local Help a Hedgehog hospital, to the disposal of computers, climate change and the international aid budget.

Mr Carmichael, a member of the Environmental Audit Committee, was also given a tour of the school premises by Eco Club members, who tend to the school’s spiritual garden and vegetable plots.

Speaking during the visit, Neil Carmichael said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed the question and answer session with pupils, and am very much encouraged by seeing young people take an interest in the environment and the world around them.

“By considering these important questions, we can work towards a better future.”
