Driffield politics student Hattie Turner has joined East Yorkshire MP Greg Knight at his Westminster Office for a period of work experience.
Driffield resident Hattie is in her final year studying Politics at the University of Sheffield. During her time at Westminster Hattie watched a House of Commons debate and assisted with the day-to-day running of Mr Knight’s office. The visit was primarily to show Hattie what is involved in the running of a MPs office.
Hattie said: “It is surprising how fast-paced the work is and how many things are going on, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Westminster and appreciate the insight into what it takes to be an MP.”
Although Hattie has no plans to become an MP herself, she is considering the possibility of a career within the civil service.
Mr Knight added: “It is important to see young people become interested and involved in politics. I am happy to have provided this experience for Hattie.”
