A group of Guides from Littleport visited the Palace of Westminster and met their MP, Malcolm Moss.

The Guides had previously welcomed Christine Weeds, a parliamentary youth officer, to their meeting and she explained the workings of the Government and the differences between the Houses of Commons and Lords.

The Guides were challenged to make a new law or amend a current law and debate their proposals.

During half-term, the Guides visited Westminster and were treated to a tour, which started from the Sovereign's entrance and the Queen's Robing Room through the Houses of Lords and Commons.
