Suffolk MP talks Pizza and Politics

Dr Dan Poulter particularly enjoyed his visit to Dale Hall Primary School in Ipswich on Friday 21st September, where he met with the Head Teacher and then with a group of the students from across Years 5 and 6.

The students were desperate to put their questions to their local MP, asking all about Dr Dan's work as an MP, both here in Suffolk and in Westminster. Aside from finding out more about the role of the MP, the group were also keen to find out a bit more "behind the scenes", not least of all, which was Dr Dan's favourite pizza topping. The discussion subsequently led to the students securing a pizza-making lesson over the coming weeks.

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 and Dr Dan looks forward to perhaps welcoming Dale Hall Primary School to Parliament in the not too distant future.

Aside from speaking to the students, Dr Dan was also concerned to learn about the recent suspected arson attack on the school's play equipment, destroying a Wendy House and putting the entire school building in danger also. Speaking to the Head Teacher, Dr Dan shares the concerns about the need for improved security fencing and he is keen to support the school further in securing the necessary improvements as a priority.

If we are talking about having civilised housing conditions that are free from damp and fit for human habitation, we need to have a lower...

Daniel Poulter: The hon. Gentleman is making a good speech with many good points. On his earlier point about accountability in the context of having a more effective national ombudsman, given that we all, I hope, accept that social housing is a social good and, in many respects, a public service, the out-and-out free market approach that has been taken to its provision has not been effective and there is...
