Palgrave Primary School put Dr Dan through his paces

A regular visitor to Palgrave Primary School, Dr Dan enjoyed meeting with staff, pupils and Governors when he dropped in for a visit on Friday 11th May.

Dr Dan met with a group of pupils who were very keen to learn more about his work as an MP and how he can help people in Central Suffolk and North Ipswich.

The enthusiastic group had clearly done their homework and put a range of well-considered questions to Dr Dan.  Dr Dan said "It's always encouraging to see younger students so engaged with politics, especially coming up with their own ideas and putting forward their own views."

Visits such as these are important in strengthening the link between what Dr Dan does as an MP locally and how he can make sure that the voice of our communities here in Suffolk are heard in Parliament.

One of the challenges she raised is that of those patients with fluctuating...
