KS2 School Council visit to the House of Parliament
We saw a debate happening in the Commons and Lords. A debate is a polite argument. In the House of Commons, they were debating about houses going up in price. In the House of Lords, they were debating about NHS winter pressures. We learnt that when the speaker of the House says ‘ORDER’ the MPs have to be silent. We learnt that the House of Commons is green, and the House of Lords is red. We learnt that a bill is like a baby law, not fully formed.
